The owners of Crenshaws TV and Appliance Stores is suing WDBJ-7 for 30 million dollars.
The lawsuit, filed today in circut court, accuses WDBJ-7 of negligence, and conspiring to harm the company's business.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=@File


The suit refers to a series of reports WDBJ-7 aired last year about Crenshaw's purchase of Holdrens stores in Roanoke and Lynchburg.
We reported that Crenshaws, after initially honoring Holdren's extended warranties, stopped doing so.
Crenshaw's says after the reports, sales decreased significantly.

WDBJ General Manager Bob Lee called the lawsuit "ridiculous", and said the station would withhold further comment pending consultation with its attorneys.

The issue of Crenshaw's warranty coverage is still being investigated by the Virginia Office Of Consumer Affairs, which referred the matter to the state Attorney General's Office for review and possible enforcement action.
