Firm pitching Super Bowl rentals in Indy ordered to pay up

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

An Indianapolis judge has ordered a Phoenix-based home rental company to pay nearly $218,000 for not providing promised services before the Super Bowl last February.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said Thursday the judge granted a default judgment after Super Week Lodging LLC and its owner Josh Hanna didn't respond to the state's lawsuit.

Zoeller says Super Week Lodging offered to list homes available for Super Bowl rentals on its website with promised refunds if the homes didn't rent. Consumers paid an upfront fee as high as $1,495.

Zoeller said the default judgment amounts to $176,000 in civil penalties, nearly $41,000 in consumer restitution and $750 in costs.

A message seeking comment was left at a telephone number listed on the company's website.

  • Criminal Charges???????
    Uh where are the criminal charges for fraud? A civil judgement. The AZ jerk should be charged for interstate fraud. I doubt his company even had a foreign corp filing with the Indiana SOS so his corporation is an unincorporated association 1 (that is a sole proprietor). Thus the judgement should be against Josh Hanna.
