Construction company says contractor failed to pay for three jobs
A construction company has filed suit against the contractor who hired it to complete work, saying it has not been paid more than $75,000 for jobs it has finished.
Cogbill Construction filed a lawsuit July 5 in Jefferson County District Court against Summit Global Contractors.
In its complaint, Cogbill Construction alleges it agreed to fabricate materials and to provide work to three different jobs. Summit Global Contractors was the global contractor responsible for overseeing all three job sites, according to the complaint.
Cogbill Construction has since completed the work, but has not been paid for it, the suit states.
“Defendant owes a balance of $44,678 to plaintiff for materials, work and services provided by plaintiff on the Huntsman Project, and a balance of $31,805 to plaintiff for materials, work and services provided by plaintiff on the Ashland Project, and a balance of $800 to plaintiff for materials, work and services provided by plaintiff on the Oil Tanking Project, making the total outstanding balance owed by defendant to plaintiff to be equal to $77,283,” the complaint says.
In addition to the money it claims it is owed, Cogbill Construction is seeking interest, costs, attorney’s fees and other relief the court deems just.
Lance Fox of Creighton, Fox, Johnson & Mills in Beaumont will be representing it.
