In fact, said Easton, the com- pany paid only $121.50 for each hearing aid and had sold them to other consumers for prices lower than the $569 charged to the Haskins'. Easton said that after purchasing the hearing aids the couple saw a physician and learned that they did not need two hearing aids apiece and attempted to return one each to the company. Easton said that "under Vermont Law a consumer may return a hearing aid within 30 days of purchase at no obligation if for any reason it is not satisfactory." The Zieglers, however, refused to make full refunds for the hearing aids in violation of that law, the suit claimed. Couple to Receive Refunds Charles Haskins turned 90 years old on August 5 this past summer. Haskins was the subject of a feature article on page one of the August 12, 1981 issue of the Journal Opinion. Mable Haskins is now living in a Bradford nursing home. Haskins retired from the Bradford National Bank in 1958 after 37 years on the job. He is a World War I veteran and an original charter member of the local American Legion Post founded in 1919. Although the Zieglers have now agreed to a settlement, they have refused to admit any wrongdoing on their part. Easton said, "the (Brad- ford) couple is now in ill health and would not have been able to fully participate in a trial of the case." As a result of the settlement the company has been ordered to make full refunds of the purchase price of the hearing aids to the couple and in addition was ordered to pay $500 to the State for investigating and prosecuting the case. The Haskin's will receive $760. as a result of the settlement. Easton said that people who are considering the purchase of a hearing aid should write to the state Consumer Protection Division for a pamphlet explaining their rights.
