CLAY — A Clay County manufacturer is suing a Kanawha County mining equipment provider, alleging fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation.
Gould's Electric Motor Repair Inc. filed a lawsuit in Clay Circuit Court against Montgomery Equipment Company Inc. alleging the defendant breached its implied and express contracts to pay for the plaintiff's performance of the work.
According to the complaint, between May 31, 2012 and April 30, 2014, Gould's built certain mining equipment in Clay County, wherein Montgomery agreed to purchase. Despite numerous attempts to collect payment, the suit says, the balance amounting to $136,980 remains unpaid.
