GALVESTON - Evergreen Environmental Services LLC asserts Lion Copolymer LLC is outstanding on a debt arising from maintenance work performed last year and has filed a lawsuit.
According to court papers filed Jan. 28 in Galveston County District Court, Lion Copolymer owes the plaintiff $30,347 toward a bill in the amount of $53,347 it received for having one of its tanks cleaned.
The suit shows that the defendant hired Evergreen Environment Services on Feb. 2, 2012, to clean the Latex No. 6 tank in Baton Rouge, La.
The task in question was done from April 18 to May 12.
Lion Copolymer incurred the subject cost and "agreed to the time and material costs and approved all responsive invoices."
It tendered a partial payment of $23,000 on July 19, 2012.
Evergreen Environmental Services states that it demanded the respondent pay the remaining balance, but the latter "failed and refused and continues to fail and refuse to pay the entire demanded debt."
"The defendant breached its contract with the plaintiff by failing to pay the plaintiff the remaining balance due on the contract for authorized work performed by the plaintiff," the suit says.
Attorney Christopher A. Gregg with Gregg & Gregg PC in Houston is representing the plaintiff.
Galveston County 56th District Court Judge Lonnie Cox is presiding over the case.
