Pearl River has filed suit against Infrared Cameras, alleging the company sold it a much cheaper camera than what was originally purchased.

The suit was filed June 1 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, Pearl contracted with Infrared for the purchase of an infrared camera. On Aug. 30 Infrared sold Pearl what was represented to be a Duracam 320, P-series camera, which was eventually delivered to a customer of Pearl.

On Nov. 11 the customer notified Pearl that the camera was actually a DL700E, a much cheaper camera.

"The cost difference between the Duracam 320 ... and DL700E is substantial," the suit states. "Defendant has refused to issue a refund to plaintiff."

The suit alleges the defendant is guilty of deceptive trade practices.

Pearl is suing for $17,000 in actual damages, plus attorney's fees.

Corpus Christi attorney Lance Bruun represents it.

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

Case No. B192-522
