CHARLESTON – Two Charleston women say a South Carolina man hasn't repaid them after they provided his tuition to the University of Charleston.

Karen and Ashley Taylor filed the lawsuit Jan. 20 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

In the suit, the plaintiff say they agreed to pay John Kline's tuition to UC "in consideration for defendant's agreement to repay the plaintiffs for said payment of tuition."

They worked up a contract on Aug. 26, 2002, according to the suit. On that same day, the plaintiffs paid $15,883.44 to UC "in full and complete discharge of their obligations under the contract" with Kline, who lives in Charleston, S.C.

The plaintiffs, represented by attorney Ryan A. Brown, say the defendant has failed to pay any money to them to date. They say they have requested that he pay, but he refuses.

Karen and Ashley Taylor claim they have suffered economic damages, aggravation, annoyance and inconvenience.

They seek compensatory, consequential and incidental damages, attorney fees, pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs and other relief.

The plaintiffs request a jury trial.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey Walker.
