In Ohio, under the Consumer Sales Practices Act, there are several defense to the lawsuit as well as counterclaims that you could assert against the repair service. If the contract was not in writing, then that would be a violation. If the repairs were not done in a workmanlike manner (three attempts and no fix seems to qualify) then this would be a problem for the Plaintiff. If they did not give you an estimate showing $300.00 of work for you to approve before the work was done, then that sounds like a CSPA violation to me as well.
