Auburn business owner named in state lawsuit

AUGUSTA — Attorney General Andrew Ketterer announced Wednesday that his office had filed a lawsuit under the Unfair Trade Practices Act, the state’s primary consumer protection law, against Robert Burns of Auburn.

Burns is owner and operator of a home improvement business in Auburn.
