Plumbing Business Countersued
The Powell Plumbing Company which is based out of Knoxville has filed a suit against a broadcaster and a TV station claiming that its reputation was damaged by the reports of the station. But the broadcaster and the station has filed counter charges against the plumbing company.
The plumbing company claims that its business was harmed when a report by the station claimed that they were engaged in harmful business practices.
According to a report by Carly Harrington for knoxnews.com, “The company claimed it posted a decline in revenue from its residential business and is seeking compensatory damages not less than $75,000 as well as punitive damages and court costs.
WATE and Dare are seeking $2 million in compensatory damages as well as punitive damages “based upon the intentional tortious actions” of Roto Rooter and court costs.”
The station in turn is saying that they lost money because of the charges brought against them by the plumbing company.
