State Sues Sherman Oaks Contractors: The state attorney general's office filed a Superior Court suit in Los Angeles Wednesday against three Sherman Oaks contracting companies, claiming that the firms misled customers, performed construction work without obtaining building permits, overcharged for the work and abandoned construction projects. Damage to consumers by Consumer Construction Corp., Royal Kitchens and Diamond Builders Inc. is estimated at $350,000, said Deputy Atty. Gen. Carlos Ramirez. The contractors declined comment.
