By Ann Maher | May 23, 2017

A Granite City couple is seeking in excess of $50,000 in damages from a fencing company it alleges failed to return a $1,500 deposit as ordered by a court.

Dean and Toni Atchison claim in their suit filed May 18 in Madison County Circuit Court that Michael Reed individually and his company Veterans Tree & Fence violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practice Act.

The Atchisons claim they entered into an agreement with Reed to construct a fence at their home, but when they canceled the agreement, he failed to return their deposit.

They further claim the defendants failed to comply with a court order in which they incurred $161 in court costs in seeking the return of the deposit.

The plaintiffs are represented by attorney Larry A. Calvo of Callis Papa & Szewczyk of Granite City.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 17-L-679.
