KC Driving School students and their parents could get some help in recovering money paid to the now defunct school after Indiana Attorney General Gregory Zoeller and Deputy Attorney General Martha Showers filed a civil suit agains KC Driving School and it's owner-operator Kimberly J. Cleeter alleging she/her business engaged in deceptive sales practices.
“More than two dozen families filed complaints with my office against KC Driving School for taking up-front payments and not delivering services. After investigating the company with help from the Aurora Police Department, it became clear that the company had no intention of continuing to offer licensed driver education or of repaying its customers,” said Zoeller.
The civil suit filed in Dearborn Circuit Court last week is a “complaint for injunction, restitution, costs, civil penalties, and other equitable relief.” Court documents refer to the school and Cleeter as “defendants.”
Showers outlines in the complaint 25 “consumers” who contracted with KC Driving School between June 2013 and July 2014 for services in amounts ranging from $475 Nov. 22, 2013, for “class+10 hrs driving” of which class time was completed but not six hours of driving, to $400 July 7, 2014, for class and 6 hours of driving of which none was completed.
