BECKLEY – A Beckley auto dealer alleges that a Princeton auto sales company failed to pay in full for a vehicle.

H&P Inc., doing business as John Howerton Honda, filed a complaint Sept. 20 in Raleigh Circuit Court against East Coast Auto Sales Inc. and Don Williams alleging breach of contract, unjust enrichment and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 9, the defendants issued a check in favor of plaintiff to complete the purchase of a 2015 Toyota 4-Runner in the amount of $29,500. On Aug. 16, the suit states Branch Banking & Trust debited plaintiff's account in the amount of $26,600. The plaintiff alleges the bank reduced the amount that plaintiff deposited to $2,900 due to the written amount in the subject check being illegible. To date, the amount of $26,000 allegedly remains due and owing by the plaintiff. 

The plaintiff seeks compensatory and general damages, attorney's fees, costs and interest and any other reasonable and appropriate relief. It is represented by Chip E. Williams and Daniel J. Burns of Pullin, Fowler, Flanagan, Brown & Poe PLLC in Beckley. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Andrew Dimlich.
