PRINCETON – A Kentucky equipment company doing business in West Virginia is suing over claims several companies breached their lease agreements.
Worldwide Equipment Leasing Inc. filed a lawsuit July 22 in Mercer Circuit Court against Truck Hauling Reorganization II and Hauling Reorganization II, both doing business as Glen's Heavy Hauling; Appalachian Leasing; and Kenny Compton, alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
The suit states the defendants had a contractual agreement with Worldwide Equipment by which the defendants leased vehicles and were obliged to pay monthly payments on them.
The suit states the defendants made partial payments per the lease agreement terms, but suddenly stopped making payments on five remaining vehicles, despite Worldwide Equipment's attempts to recover the amount owed.
As of June 30, the defendants owed Worldwide Equipment a balance of $104,114.94.
Worldwide Equipment seeks to recover the unpaid balance, plus interests and attorney fees and costs.
The plaintiff is being represented by Harry F. Bell Jr. of The Bell Law Firm in Charleston. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Omar J. Aboulhosn.
