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
