A Jefferson County company is seeking more than $35,000 it says it is owed for supplying goods to a construction company.

Cowboy Valve and Fittings Inc. filed a lawsuit July 9 in Jefferson County District Court against Wild Horse Construction LLC.

Cowboy Valve claims Wild Horse ordered various valves and fittings during September, October and November.

However, Cowboy Valve alleges Wild Horse has failed to pay for the materials it provided, according to the complaint.

"After application of all credits, payments and offsets against account, Defendant owes Plaintiff the principal sum of $35,821.08," the suit states.

Despite Cowboy Valve's written demands for the money, Wild Horse refuses to reimburse the company, the complaint says.

In addition to the amount of money it says it is owed, Cowboy Valve is seeking pre-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law, post-judgment interest at the legal rate, attorney's fees, costs and other relief to which it may be entitled.

Kerwin B. Stone of Moore Landry in Beaumont will be representing it.

The case has been assigned to Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court.

Jefferson County District Court case number: B184-469.
