Attorney General Jack Conway today announced that his Office of Consumer Protection has obtained a temporary injunction against Donald R. Curtis, a Central Kentucky seller and installer of cemetery monuments and headstones doing business under the name of Resource Granite Sales. The temporary injunction was issued by the Franklin Circuit Court on July 23 and prohibits Curtis from making any sales of cemetery monuments personally, or under the name of Resource Granite Sales.

The temporary injunction also requires Curtis to file a sworn report with the court by November 13. A copy of the temporary injunction is available online at http://goo.gl/Ugrc1l .

The Attorney General's Office began investigating Curtis and Resource Granite Sales after receiving complaints from consumers. Curtis is accused of violating Kentucky's Consumer Protection Act by taking advance payments from consumers for cemetery products but failing to deliver or install the product.

In July 2012, General Conway's Office obtained a consent judgment against Curtis and Resource Granite, requiring him to provide certain disclosures to consumers when taking advance payments and file certain reports with the Attorney General.

Any consumer who did business with Donald R. Curtis or Resource Granite Sales, and whose monument was not timely installed or who has not received a full refund, is encouraged to contact the Kentucky Attorney General's Office of Consumer Protection. Consumer complaints may be filed online or downloaded at http://ag.ky.gov/civil/consumerprotection/complaints/. Consumers may also call 1-888-432-9257 (option 3) or 502-696-5389 to obtain a complaint form.
