A Harris County electrical supplier and distributor is suing a contractor and the company it worked for, allegedly for failing to pay for materials supplied to a construction project.

Consolidated Electrical Distributors (CED) Inc. filed a lawsuit Nov. 11 in Galveston County District Court against Salt & Pepper Restaurants Inc.

According to the complaint, CED sold electrical materials to Westmoreland Builders for the construction of the Quaker Steak and Lube project owned by Salt & Pepper Restaurants in League City, pursuant to a credit agreement between CED and Westmoreland, the original contractor for the project. The complaint states Westmoreland has not paid CED for materials furnished, owing more than $60,053, and Salt & Pepper has failed and refused to pay for the materials furnished by the plaintiff to the Quaker Steak and Lube project.

CED seeks the foreclosure of a mechanic's and materialman's lien against the project to secure the payment of the debt, the amount owed, interest, attorney fees and costs of court. It is represented by attorney W. Jason Walker of Andrews Myers in Houston.

Galveston County District Court case number: 14-CV-1200
