MOUNDSVILLE – A Virginia non-profit corporation is accusing a pipeline company of not paying for materials.
Marshall County Cooperative, a Virginia non-profit corporation doing business as Southern States Marshall County Cooperative, filed a lawsuit Oct. 19 in Marshall Circuit Court against Pipeline Energy Group, doing business as Carl Smith Pipeline, alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
Beginning in November 2014, the complaint states, Pipeline Energy Group entered into several contracts with Marshall County Cooperative for the purchase of materials to be used in Pipeline's construction business. Specifically, in April, Pipeline purchased approximately $8,600 of seeds and various other materials from Marshall County Cooperative, the lawsuit says.
The suit alleges despite repeated requests by Marshall County Cooperative, Pipeline Energy has refused to remit the balance of payments due for the seeds and other materials.
Marshall County Cooperative has since incurred finance charges of approximately $460, resulting in an unpaid total balance of approximately $9,100.
Marshall County Cooperative seeks to recover the unpaid balance, plus post-judgment interest and costs of the suit. It is represented by attorney Gerlad E. Lofstead III of Spilman Thomas & Battle in Wheeling. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jeffrey Cramer.
Marshall Circuit Court case number 15-C-1780.
