They hired a contractor to renovate the kitchen and bathroom of their modest house and wound up with the house gutted, deep in debt, and essentially homeless.
Cramer & Anderson Partner John Tower filed suit against the Danbury contractor hired by Degen, and won a court judgment against the contractor of roughly $471,000.
The Degens, meanwhile, were rescued by the Holland Family Foundation, which provides them with housing in New Milford.
