WINFIELD — Two Hurricane apartment building owners are suing Cabell County contractors, alleging they owe more than $44,000 for breach of contract.
Robert T. Meeks and Melissa D. Meeks LLC filed a complaint March 26 in Putnam Circuit Court against Builders Discount LLC and David Wayne Teager, alleging failure to perform contractual obligations.
According to the complaint, in June 2016, Robert and Melissa Meeks retained the defendants to perform construction work on their apartment building in Hurricane with a down payment of $50,000 to start the project. Due to unfinished work, the suit says, the defendants promised to repay the plaintiffs the sum of $45,442.45 with interest.
After due credits for payment, the amount of $44,442.45 remains unpaid, the suit says. The plaintiffs allege Builders Discount and Teager have failed to perform construction work as agreed upon and have failed to repay the money owed the plaintiffs.
Robert Meeks and Melissa Meeks seek trial by jury, judgment of $44,442.45, pre- and post judgment interest, incidental and consequential damages, attorney fees, court costs and all other appropriate relief. They are represented by attorney Travis W. Hoffman of Tyree, Embree & Associates PLLC in Hurricane.
