HUNTINGTON -- A man is suing East End Realty Company after he claims it breached its contract with him by agreeing to sell him property and then entering into a contract with another buyer.
Brass Ring, Inc., was also named as a defendant in the suit.
In 2011, the defendants agreeing to sell a piece of property to Dennis Johnson and he agreed to buy the property and a contract was formed, according to a complaint filed April 26 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Johnson claims he then obtained financing to buy the property.
Since the time that Johnson obtained financing, the defendants have failed to abide by the contract by failing to convey the real estate to him, according to the suit.
Johnson claims the defendants have now entered into a contract to sell the property to Marshall University, which is a breach of his contract with the defendants.
The defendants failure and breach of contract has caused Johnson damages, according to the suit.
Johnson is seeking for the court to enter an order for the defendants to convey the property to Johnson for the agreed purchase price and for compensatory, incidental and consequential damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Richard W. Weston.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
