BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo contractor has been banned from doing business in North Dakota for at least five years or until he makes restitution to the homeowners he cheated.

The state attorney general’s consumer protection division has been investigating Timothy Rosene and his business, Studs to Rugs, since October 2017 after receiving multiple complaints from homeowners who said Rosene had taken large advance deposits from them, then abruptly closed his business without providing refunds.

The AG sued Rosene for violations of the consumer fraud law. A settlement agreement approved this week in Cass County District Court requires Rosene to pay restitution of nearly $122,000. The court’s judgment also includes $12,250 in penalties and fees and bans Rosene from working as a contractor for five years, or until he makes full restitution.
