A building company has been named in a fraud claim after allegedly failing to provide proof of the amount a Harris County man owed for a job.

Cass Shewbart filed a lawsuit May 7 in the Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Stoneray Builders LLC and Tony P. Frederick, citing fraud. 

Shewbart claims he came to an agreement with the defendants to build his residence on Pegasus Lane in League City last July.

The suit alleges defendant Frederick wanted to buy all materials and pay for labor himself and then have Shewbart reimburse him for any amounts expended on the project.

According to the brief, Shewbart states he grew suspicious of the invoices that seemed excessive and asked the defendants for their lumber invoices, but they have avoided giving him the invoices.

Shewbart is seeking actual damages, interest, attorney's fees and court costs.

He is being represented by Humble attorney John Papapavlou and Porya Mostaghimi of PM Law Firm PLLC.
