A judge has ordered a Massachusetts fundraiser to stop seeking charitable donations from Iowans for five years as part of an agreement reached with the company.

Polk County Judge Michael Huppert, in a consent order filed Monday, bars Cambridge, Mass.-based Integral Resources Inc. from seeking donations from Iowans for five years and orders the company to pay the state $30,000. The company must pay another $70,000 if it resumes business in Iowa after the ban expires.

The company has agreed to the order but denies wrongdoing. The company did not immediately return a message.

Attorney General Tom Miller alleges in a lawsuit the company used false statements in calls including deception about how much of each donated dollar goes to the stated cause.

The company may continue political fundraising.
