On Your Side Investigation: Bankruptcy proceedings began for Springfield sunroom company

it was a long day in federal court as bankruptcy proceedings began for Springfield Sunrooms, also known as Four Seasons.

For months, Contact KY3 On Your Side has investigated into more than forty consumer complaints about shoddy work and unfinished projects.

This is called a meeting of creditors. It took more than three hours because so many creditors showed up, mostly upset customers. Customers got the chance to ask the owner questions under oath. Cameras are not allowed in federal court.

Hainrihar said he paid himself just a few days before filing. It was also discovered why he had lenders outside of Springfield. Local banks rejected the request. So he got loans from lenders in other states with interest rates up to 30-percent.

"I'm very sorry this affected so many good people. So many families. Our employees. Their families. My family. We are going to continue to cooperate with the trustee," Michael Hainrihar said.

It's recommended customers talk with an attorney and file what's called a proof of claim. This puts you in position to possibly get some of your money back.

Later this month a public auction will take place at the Springfield Sunrooms, Four Seasons -- Springfield location on the north side of town. Vehicles, trailers, and supplies will be sold.
