GALVESTON – A Friendswood construction company alleges it was not paid for Hurricane Harvey-related work on a residence.
McCollum Builders Inc. filed a complaint on Dec. 10 in the Galveston County District Court against John and Joyce Brinly and Scott Brinly alleging breach of contract, fraud and other counts.
According to the complaint, the Brinly defendants' home was flooded after Hurricane Harvey hit the state in August 2017. The suit states the plaintiff was contacted to do rescue and mitigation work and it was agreed the plaintiff would undertake repairs as identified by the private insurance claims adjusters. The suit states a final invoice of $54,763.63 was submitted to the defendants.
The plaintiff alleges it was not paid for the work and Scott Brinly prevented it from retrieving rented equipment and storage pods from the property.
The plaintiff holds John and Joyce Brinly and Scott Brinly responsible because the defendants breached the agreement by failing to pay for the work and materials for their home.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendants in the amount of $54,763.63, interest, attorney fees, expenses and costs and all other relief in law and in equity that it may be entitled to under the law. It is represented by Thomas C. Knickerbocker of The Knickerbocker Law Firm PLLC in Nassau Bay.
