Attorney General Files Complaint Against Window and Door Retailer "Creative Openings" for Violating the Wisconsin "No Call" Law


MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has announced that the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed an enforcement action against Creative Openings, an Outagamie County-based retailer of replacement windows, doors and siding. The complaint alleges that Creative Openings had failed to register certain telephone lines as a telemarketer under Wisconsin law, and had made hundreds of thousands of telephone solicitation calls to Wisconsin residents who are registered on the state's “No Call List,” in violation of state law. The case was referred to the DOJ by the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).


The complaint requests that the circuit court enjoin Creative Openings from further violations of the “No Call” statute and seeks forfeitures of $100 per occurrence for each call made to numbers on the “No Call List,” as well as costs and fees associated with prosecution. The case will be filed in Outagamie County Circuit Court.


The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Gwendolyn Cooley, with investigative assistance provided by DATCP.
