A Galveston county business is suing after forming a subcontract agreement with Blackstone Commercial Landscaping. 

Beale Corp. LLC filed a lawsuit Feb. 6 in the Galveston County District Court against Blackstone Commercial Landscaping LLC, citing breach of contract and negligence.

The lawsuit states on June 29, the plaintiff and defendant entered into a subcontract agreement, which stated the plaintiff was to supply labor, tools, material and supervision.

The complaint also states that under the agreement, the defendant was to designate holes where to place trees, properly mark where the holes needed to be dug and ensure the area for holes were free from obstacles or obstructions.

The plaintiff says, while it was using its spade truck to dig the holes, it struck an underground obstruction, destroying their truck.

The defendant failed to properly locate underground obstructions, causing the plaintiff's damages, according to the complaint. The plaintiff states the defendant has also failed to pay under the subcontract agreement.

Beale Corp. is seeking $1,620 for work performed, $5,460 for unilateral termination of the subcontract agreement, $118,300 for the spade truck, interest and fees.

The plaintiff is being represented in the case by attorney Martyn B. Hill of Pagel, Davis & Hill.
