CHARLESTON – Southern West Virginia Asphalt, Inc., is suing Freedom Ministries, Inc., after it claims it failed to pay for asphalt.
Robert Lucas, Randall Lucas and Tammy Lucas were also named as defendants in the suit.
On June 5, June 7 and June 8, Robert Lucas picked up several loads of asphalt from the plaintiff, according to a complaint filed Jan. 11 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
SWVA claims the bank returned the defendants’ checks because a stop-payment order was placed on each of them.
Despite several attempts to collect the debt, the defendants failed to pay for the goods and services, according to the suit.
SWVA claims the defendants breached their contract and caused them damages.
The defendants have been unjustly enriched at SWVA’s expense by failing to pay for the asphalt, according to the suit.
SWVA is seeking damages in the amount of $13,924.46, plus $75 for the three returned check fees and pre- and post-judgment interest. It is being represented by Norman T. Daniels Jr. and Nicholas R. Stuchell.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James C. Stucky.
