HOUSTON – A failed swimming pool project prompted a Harris County man to file a lawsuit.
Michael Edwards is suing Charles Vostry, doing business as Crimson Pool Co. A recent complaint filed in the Harris County 295th District Court on Dec. 15 explains that Edwards hired Vostry to build a pool at his residence, but the defendant underperformed despite being paid nearly $10,000.
Vostry allegedly performed less than five percent of the work he agreed to do and ultimately abandoned the project, pocketing the funds for himself.
Edwards states that he learned during a legal consultation early last year that the respondent was in violation of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
He is represented by attorney Matthew Chappell of Houston.
