J-Clawges; PA-Robert D. Berryman, Esquire
* Pavone, acting on behalf of Idlewood, claims she paid $24,800 to Charles Corwin, under the assumption that he was working on behalf of Corwin Place. This sum was an earnest money deposit for eight lots located in Corwin Place. When Corwin Place admitted that utilities would not be installed in a timely manner and that no date of completion could be set, he agreed to refund the deposit plus 8 percent interest per annum. Only $3,500 of this money has been refunded, and Pavone is seeking $21,300 plus pre- and post-judgment interest, as well as court costs.
