A Beaumont corporation has filed suit against two companies that it claims failed to pay more than $11,000 for services and goods it provided.

Alliance Masonry claims it sold goods, wares, merchandise and services on credit to defendant Reeves Development.

According to the company website, Reeves Development is a Lake Charles, La.-based real estate brokerage, commercial development and comprehensive construction service provider.

"Defendant Reeves Development promised to pay this account when the same became due but has failed to do so," the suit filed Aug. 27 in Jefferson County District Court states. "Defendant is liable to Plaintiff in the total sum of $11,600."

Although Reeves was given money to pay for Alliance Masonry's services, it has refused to remit the money to Alliance Masonry, the complaint says.

In addition to the money it says it is due, Alliance Masonry is seeking interest at the maximum rate allowed by law, attorney's fees, costs, order of the sale of realty and other relief the court deems just.

Daniel D. Clayton of Beaumont will be representing Alliance Masonry.

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

Jefferson County District Court case number: A187-786.
