R&R Marine Maintenance claims it paid Falcon Offshore Services a tidy sum of money to purchase some materials and build the company a heliport structure.

Falcon ordered the materials but claims it was never paid.

R&R is suing Falcon for more than $50,000 for not finishing the job and the materials. R&R filed its breach of contract suit against Falcon, and its owners/employees Joe Mills, Jimmy branch and J.P. Marks with the Jefferson County District Court on June 21.

According to R&R's original petition, "plaintiff contracted with Falcon to fabricate a pipe rack, shale shaker module and heliport structure. Plaintiff paid Falcon substantial sums of money to start the jobs and purchase materials. Falcon ordered the materials and invoiced plaintiff for them, but failed to pay the supplier.

The suit goes on to say the supplier then repossessed the materials. "Falcon's financial difficulties caused it to lack the funds to procure materials and/or complete the jobs.

The plaintiff is demanding a trial by jury, and is represented by attorney William Mahley of the Strasburger & Price law firm.

Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, will preside over the case.

Case No. D179-543
