A Texas corporation is suing a contracting company, alleging it was not paid money it was owed pursuant to a trucking services contract.

Arrankumar Lachman, doing business as D&L Trucking, filed a lawsuit May 29 in Jefferson County District Court against C&C West Contracting.

Lachman says his company entered into a contract with West in which it agreed to truck various materials for West, among other unnamed services.

However, West has failed to pay Lachman for services it performed, according to the complaint.

"As of the date of filing this Petition, West is liable to D&L for the total sum of $122,500, with the understanding that this amount may increase after the date of this Petition," the suit states.

In addition to the amount he says he is due under the contract, Lachman is seeking direct and consequential actual damages, plus money for the value of the services and materials provided, pre- and post-judgment interest at the highest rate allowed, costs, attorney's fees and other relief to which he may be entitled.

Olen Dodd of Beaumont will be representing Lachman.

The case has been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court.

Jefferson County District Court case number: A184-173.
