By Lawrence Smith | Jul 23, 2010

WINFIELD – A Pennsylvania telephone book publisher is suing a Fayette County contractor for failing to pay for advertising in one of their directories.

Ogden Directories Inc. filed suit against Bradley L. Bowe and River Valley Contracting LLC in Putnam Circuit Court on June 28. In their complaint, Ogden, an Altoona, Penn. business with offices in Winfield, alleges Bowe and River Valley, located in Fayetteville, is in arrears over $7,500 for unpaid advertising.

According to the suit, Bowe and River Valley "entered into contracts with [Ogden] in which [they] agreed to pay money to [them] in return for advertising in a phone book published by [Ogden]." The date this was done is not stated in court records.

Also not stated in court records is the edition of which Ogden Directories the advertisement was published. Nevertheless, Ogden alleges Bowe and River Valley "breached the terms of the contract entered into between [them] by failing to fully pay [Ogden] all moneys owed to [Ogden] under the terms of the contract entered between the parties."

Ogden seeks judgment against Bowe and River Valley for $7,528.52 plus pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Gerald Hayden with the Beckley law firm of Hayden and Hart.

The case is assigned to Judge Phillip M. Stowers.
