Convenience store seeks injunction to stop company from delivering fuel

A Nederland convenience store has filed an application for an injunction in hopes of stopping Spencer Distributing from delivering fuel.

Transtop, doing business as Ontrak, filed the petition on March 3 in Jefferson County District Court.

Court records show that in August Transtop purchased a convenience store, located at 2924 Nederland Ave., from Anna Trading.

"Unbeknownst to Transtop at the time of purchase, Anna Trading had a motor fuel supply contract with Spencer Distributing," the suit states.

Following the purchase, Spencer proposed a new contract, which Transtop rejected, electing to obtain its fuel from a different supplier.

However, Spencer continues to deliver fuel and charge the convenience store, the suit states.

Transtop is asking the court to declare that a contract does not exist between the two companies and issue an injunction barring Spencer from delivering fuel.

The company is represented by Beaumont attorney Greg Dykeman of Strong Pipkin Bissell & Ledyard.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. B189-530
