GALVESTON - Morrell Masonry Supply Inc. is suing the Brent and Michele Patterson Family Limited Liability Partnership in an effort to collect nearly $5,000 for materials it supplied for a project at the defendant's League City property.
A lawsuit filed Oct. 15 in Galveston County District Court claims the respondent owes Morrell $4,676.83 for supplies necessary toward improvements at said property, asserting efforts "to conspire with others to defraud the plaintiff" were made.
Court papers show the defendant hired W.M. Jones Construction to perform work on the property and W.M., in turn, brought in Sanchez Stucco Plastering to complete the tasks at hand.
W.M. and Sanchez then ordered material for the stucco installation from the complainant, which subsequently delivered the products.
According to the original petition, the businesses, who are not defendants, did not pay the plaintiff the $4,676.83 in dispute.
Morrell adds it sent required notices to the three entities to no avail and was prompted to file a mechanic and material man's lien against the aforementioned property.
The suit further shows the construction trust funds were wrongly applied.
The complainant also seeks a minimum of $7,500 in attorney's fees.
It is represented by attorney Karalynn C. Cromeens with The Cromeens Law Firm, P.L.L.C. in Houston.
Galveston County 56th District Court Judge Lonnie Cox is presiding over the case.
Case No. 12-cv-2159
