HOUSTON — A Harris County man is suing a Montgomery County company that hired him as a subcontractor, alleging he was never paid for work he completed.
Adrian Equivel filed a complaint April 30 in Harris County District Court against Idelfonso Torres, doing business as MT Construction, alleging breach of contract, failure to pay nearly $10,000 and misapplication of construction trust funds.
According to the complaint, Equivel and MT Construction entered into a contract agreement in which the plaintiff delivered the labor to improve a property at 8215 Cypresswood Drive, Spring. Equivel says he is owed $9,925 for the work performed and an additional $2,555, but the defendant has failed to pay for the completed work.
Equivel seeks the sum of $12,830, attorney fees, court costs and all other just relief. He is represented by attorneys Christopher J. Willett and Jordyn Rystrom Emmert of Equal Justice Center in Houston and Austin.
