WINFIELD – A Scott Depot couple claims construction loan funds paid to Teays Valley Builders were used for its own purposes instead of for the construction of a home.
Travis Mollohan and Crystal Mollohan filed a complaint Feb. 9 in Putnam Circuit Court against Howard Gregory and T.V.B. Inc. alleging breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on March 17, 2017, they contracted the defendant to construct a house. They allege they discovered the defendants used money not to purchase materials or subcontractor services but for their own purpose. The suit states material men and subcontractors are in the process of filing liens against the plaintiff's property.
The plaintiffs hold Howard Gregory and T.V.B. Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly breached their contract and fraudulently induced them into entering the contract.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant for damages, compensatory damages, consequential and incidental damages, punitive damages, court costs, any additional damages, interest and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by Kevin W. Hughart of Hughart Law Office in Sissonville. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Phillip M. Stowers.
