Office of Consumer Protection Collaborates with State to Take Action Against Merchant Who Failed to Deliver Wedding Videos

For Immediate Release: Friday, May 6, 2016

Montgomery County’s Office of Consumer Protection (OCP) has received over 35 complaints from newlyweds alleging that they paid a local wedding video business $2,000 to $14,000 for videography services and have waited between one to two years without receiving their wedding videos.

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh’s office filed charges against Martin Gruber and Blue Sky Media Corporation (formerly known as Martin Andrews, Inc.) trading as “Blue Sky Films” for failing to deliver promised videos. The Statement of Charges was served upon Martin Gruber by OCP Investigators. Based upon documentation obtained by OCP, over 50 married couples appear to have been victimized by this merchant.

“Even if the merchant claims to be a defunct business, we believe that the raw video footage is an extremely valuable asset to these consumers,” said OCP Director Eric Friedman. “We have joined forces with the Maryland Attorney General’s Office in an effort to obtain redress for all of the consumers.”

OCP is grateful for the efforts of the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division to investigate and in taking the lead to file these administrative charges. (AG press release) Consumers with complaints against Blue Sky Films, Blue Sky Media Corporation, Martin Andrews, Inc., or Martin Gruber may call the Consumer Protection Division at 410-576-6569 or may write to the Consumer Protection Division at 200 St. Paul Place, 16th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202.
