A Beaumont corporation has applied for a writ of garnishment against Southwest Shipyard after it says it obtained a judgment worth more than $40,000 against another corporation.
Crenshaw Enterprises doing business as Tiger Industrial Rentals claims it obtained a judgment against R&D Environmental Services on Dec. 4 for $42,790.53, plus interest at 5 percent per annum, costs of $305 and attorney's fees of $2,000.
According to its application for the writ of garnishment filed Jan. 28 in Jefferson County District Court, the judgment remains unsatisfied, but R&D does not possess property in Texas sufficient to satisfy the writ of garnishment.
So, Crenshaw filed the writ of garnishment against Southwest because Southwest owes business debts to R&D, the suit states.
John Seth Bullard of Orgain, Bell and Tucker in Beaumont will be representing Crenshaw.
The case has been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court.
Jefferson County District Court case number: A185-814.
