Firm pitching Super Bowl rentals in Indy ordered to pay up

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.
