CHARLESTON – Walker Machinery has filed a federal lawsuit to collect more than $350,000 from a Kentucky-based business on a debt.

Walker Machinery filed the suit last week in federal court in Charleston against Ashland-based Appalachian LLC, also known as Appalachian Fuels.

Walker Machinery is a heavy equipment dealer. From October 2006 to June, Appalachian Fuels rented heavy equipment from Walker and had the use, custody and possession of the equipment pursuant to the terms of the rental agreements.

"As of July 31, 2007, Appalachian Fuels owes Walker Machinery $364,755.80 for heavy equipment parts supplied, repair services rendered and rental of equipment," the suit states. "Appalachian Fuels is in default of its obligations to Walker Machinery to make payments on its open accounts and, therefore, in breach of its agreements with Walker
Machinery."

Thus, Walker Machinery seeks that amount plus pre- and post-judgment
interest, court costs and expenses, including attorney fees, as well as other relief.

The complaint was filed for Walker Machinery by Julia A. Chincheck and J. Mark Adkins of the Charleston law firm of Bowles Rice McDavid Graff & Love LLP.

Case number 2:07-0507
