A Galveston County business has sued a company, alleging breach of duty.

Kings High Ranch filed a lawsuit March 25 in Galveston County District Court against WBW Enterprises of Texas over a monetary dispute dating to October 2013.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 1, 2013, King Hills Ranch wrote a check for $25,000 to the defendant with the understanding WBW would build a 26-foot trailer but WBW has not fulfilled its obligation.

Kings High Ranch sent a letter to WBW insisting on payment Feb. 23, with a request to respond with 10 days of receipt but no response was given, the suit states. The complaint says the parties entered into a valid and enforceable contract, that the plaintiff satisfied its duty by remitting payment and that the defendant was in breach of contract when it failed to perform the work.

Because the defendant was in arrears for more than 30 days, the plaintiff states it is entitled to an additional sum of money. The plaintiff cites monetary loss and inconvenience.

Kings High Ranch seeks: actual damages of $25,000; pre- and post-judgment interest; attorney fees; expenses and costs. The business is represented by attorneys Jason Keith and Andrew Krone of Waldron & Schneider in Houston.
