A motion to enforce settlement was recently filed in a breach of warranty suit.

As previously reported, Larry Judice, owner of Larry's French Market, filed suit Aug. 5, 2010, in Jefferson County District Court against Republic Powdered Metals, Woodford Commercial Roofing and the William Anderson Co., claiming the restaurant's metal roof leaks despite multiple efforts to repair the problem.

Court records show the case was settled on Sept. 21.

On Jan. 13 Judice filed a motion to enforce settlement, asserting that no funds have been received from defendant William Anderson Co.

The motion requests that the defendant be ordered to pay $2,000.

In his suit, Judice claims that he hired the defendants to install a metal roof on his market at 3701 Pure Atlantic Highway in Groves in September 2006.

"The roof has subsequently leaked during heavy rainfall on numerous occasions, despite attempts by Defendant, Republic Powdered Metals, to repair it under the warranty which remains in effect," the suit states.

Bob K. Monk and Brandon P. Monk of The Monk Law Firm in Port Arthur represent Judice.

The defendants are represented in part by Beaumont attorneys Gregg Brown, Stephen Bega and Kip Lamb.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A187-489
