less-

Terminix lied to an ordained pastor and his wife about the condition of a Newport Arkansas home they bought. Terminix said all damage in the house was repaired. In truth, it needed to be torn down. The managers responsible for the false inspection report confessed at the arbitration hearing. The entire sub-flooring system needed to be replaced.

The arbitrator expressly stated that he awarded the maximum punitive damages the U.S. Constitution would allow.
