R&S Tank Service has filed suit against Melvin Walker and his business, MRW Investments, alleging a check for services rendered bounced.

The suit was filed Dec. 5 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, in January 2013 R&S entered into a contract with Walker for delivery and installation of fuel dispensers.

R&S completed the project in March and was issued a check by Walker, which was returned due to lack of funds.

“To date, Walker has failed to issue payment for the installation work done by R&S,” the suit states, adding that the defendants committed fraud.

R&S is suing for actual and punitive damages, plus attorney’s fees and court costs.

The company is represented by Stacie Augustine, attorney for the Beaumont law firm Strong Pipkin Bissell & Ledyard.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A195-026
