SAN DIEGO (CN) – Home Depot charges customers for “required” municipal permits to install the hot water heaters it sells, but never files for the permits, a class-action complaint claims in Superior Court.
Lead plaintiff Richard Stanford claims Home Depot defrauds its customers, breaches contract and engages in deceptive trade to unjustly enrich itself. He demands disgorgement, compensatory and punitive damages and corrective action. He is represented by Keegan & Baker of La Jolla. See complaint.
