Transit Mix Concrete and Materials Co. has filed a breach of contract complaint against Civco Management Group, Paha Legacy and Harley Shofner, alleging they failed to pay the balance due on products they were delivered.

Represented by Bill Richey of Griffin & Matthews in Beaumont, Transit claims Civco, Paha and Shofner agreed to pay the designated price for all the products it received but has failed and refused to pay any amounts.

The products were meant to improve 3225 Lake Arthur Drive in Port Arthur, the suit states.

"After all just and lawful offsets, credits and payments have been applied, there is a balance due and owing to Plaintiff from Defendants in the amount of $85,940.31," the complaint filed Sept. 29 in Jefferson District Court states.

Transit is seeking a sum in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court, including pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees and costs.

It is also seeking a lien on the Port Arthur property.

The case has been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court.

Case No. E182-462
