By JENNIFER SANDERS The latest on Houzz, its parent company, closing its doors in a deal that closed on Monday, July 12, 2018 article Houzz was a rental car service that provided cars to consumers with their own cars in a variety of locations around the country.
But in recent years, the company faced criticism for its poor service and poor customer service, and it was eventually forced to close its car rental operations in 2016.
In May of this year, the New York Times reported that the company had paid more than $500 million to settle a lawsuit brought by consumers who claimed that it had overcharged them by hundreds of dollars.
In response, Houzz filed for bankruptcy protection in 2018.
The company announced on Monday that it would be shutting down its operations in 2019.
Houzz and its parent, HouZZ Car Rentals, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday and said in a statement that they were “in the process of closing the remaining vehicles at the end of 2019.”
Houzz said that it will not continue to offer leasing options in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
The move comes just days after a court in Texas agreed to grant a motion by the company’s lawyers to halt enforcement of the state’s laws against discrimination against people based on race, color, national origin, gender, disability, age, religion, ancestry or sex.
It also comes just two weeks after Houzz faced allegations that it discriminated against female car rental drivers, who said they were harassed and abused by Houzz drivers.
On Friday, the Los Angeles Times reported on a new lawsuit filed by a group of women who alleged that Houzz had retaliated against them after they told the company they wanted to move to Hawaii.
The women said that HouZZ had used threats, physical violence, and even physical assault, the Times reported.
In a statement on Monday afternoon, Houxx said that while the lawsuit “may not be an ideal outcome,” it represented a “significant setback” for the company.
Houxx has said that the allegations against it are untrue.
