HUNTINGTON - A man is suing American Preservation Builders LLC after he claims it breached its contract with him by refusing to pay him for his services.
M. Jay Stephenson, who is doing business as Cutting Edge Concrete, entered into a contract with American whereby he was a subcontractor of the defendant and was to perform certain construction services on an apartment building complex known as Founder's Landing, according to a complaint filed April 1 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Stephenson claims upon completion of the work, he provided the defendant with an invoice describing the work performed and the amount the defendant owed him for the work.
The defendant refused to pay Stephenson the balance owed for the work, despite continuing efforts to obtain payment, according to the suit.
Stephenson claims the defendant owes him $20,776.75 and the defendant's refusal to pay is a breach of contract.
Because of the defendant's breach of contract, Stephenson is entitled to damages and interest, according to the suit.
Stephenson is seeking judgment in the amount of $20,776.75 with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Daniel T. Yon and David D. Amsbary of Bailes, Craig & Yon PLLC.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
