CARTER COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – A Tri-Cities plumber accused of taking clients’ money but not finishing contracted jobs had a court hearing in Carter County Wednesday.
Glenn Harris did not appear in court to answer to a civil lawsuit filed against him, but his attorney was present at the hearing.
An Elizabethton homeowner is suing Harris for nearly $8,000 for breach of contract, fraud, and damages. The same homeowner filed a complaint against Harris with the Tennessee Board for Licensing Contractors in May. According to the complaint, the homeowner said he paid Harris $7,700 up front to repair a leak, remove a drain, install a shower, hardware, and floor tile. The homeowner claims Harris did not finish the job.
The judge reset the case to January 18th to allow both sides time to build their cases. Harris is set to appear in Washington County criminal court Wednesday on a theft charge.
