Homeowner sues contractor for not finishing $40K project

GALVESTON – A Harris County man claims that an incomplete construction project at his Galveston residence cost him $40,000 in economic and consequential damages, recent court documents say.

Mark T. Adlam filed suit against contractor Michael Bomer, alleging Bomer failed to perform under and breached the contract both parties entered in December 2009. The original petition was filed Jan. 21 in Galveston County Court at Law No. 2.

Adlam faults the defendant for not finishing the task despite being fully paid for labor and materials.

"The work was never completed, and much of the work that was performed was defective," the suit states.

It insists that "the defendant failed to pay its vendors, and the plaintiff was forced to pay invoices to prevent or release liens on the property."

"The plaintiff also sustained damages as a result of the defendant's breach of the contract and the plaintiff having to pay other contractors and vendors to complete the project," the suit says.

Consequently, Adlam seeks unspecified monetary damages.

He is represented by Weycer, Kaplan, Pulaski & Zuber PC.

The case has been assigned to Galveston County Court at Law No. 2 Judge Barbara Roberts.

Cause No. 64,556
