The owner of an RV park has filed suit against the company that she claims refused to reimburse her more than $15,000 after she canceled an order.

Betty Nelson, doing business as Spoonvill RV Park, claims she purchased a portable building from Morgan Buildings and Spas on June 22, 2009, for $16,526.74.

Within two days, Nelson canceled the order, but Morgan refuses to reimburse her the money she paid for the building, according to the complaint filed June 21 in Jefferson County District Court.

Nelson says Morgan Buildings and Spas violated the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

In her complaint, Nelson is seeking a judgment within the limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus actual, compensatory and exemplary damages, attorney's fees, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Ron S. Rainey of Tritico Rainey in Houston will be representing her.

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

Case No. A190-324
