The thing about this fella, he doesn't want to be involved with google because it's just "another thing" to deal with. I explained to him about verifying his business and the changes per the business owner link, and I would manage it through my google account, but he feels differently about it and quite honestly prefers google not publish his hours, etc; That's why he had is own website built, right?
Your client obviously does not want to take a simple choice, which is just to claim his listing and enter work hours. It does not need to be maintained, just putting the data right the first time would do the trick.
The alternative of writing to Google and complaining etc would take much more time with unpredictable results, and involving lawyers would also cost $$$.
It seems to me your client may want to "prove the point" rather than going for the easiest way to fix his problem.
From Google SEO point of view, the answer would be claiming the listing and entering the correct work hours. All else is a subject of a different thread or even perhaps not these forums.
