Sherwin-Williams sues over unpaid invoice involving BISD project

The Sherwin-Williams Co. has filed suit against a construction company, alleging it owes more than $40,000.

In its complaint, Sherwin-Williams alleges it delivered $23,296 worth of goods to defendant Lauren Moore, doing business as KLM Construction.

In addition, Sherwin-Williams provided goods for Moore to use on construction at the Beaumont Independent School District.

Prior to Moore's purchase of the $19,993 worth of goods, he had entered into a contract with defendant Allco to perform the construction, according to the complaint filed Sept. 30 in Jefferson County District Court.

Since purchasing the materials on credit, Moore has failed to repay Sherwin-Williams, the suit states.

In addition to Moore, Sherwin-Williams names Allco and Travelers as defendants, saying they issued a payment bond. By issuing the bond, Allco and Travelers guaranteed that all money owed for the construction of the Beaumont Independent School District would be paid to creditors.

Allco and Travelers, however, failed to pay Sherwin-Williams for the products it supplied for construction of the school despite multiple notices the company sent.

In addition to the money it says it is owed, Sherwin-Williams Company is seeking attorney's fees, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Randall F. Adair and Daniel S. Bowns of Adair, Morris and Osborn in Dallas will be representing it.

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

Case No. A191-046
