HUNTINGTON — A contractor is suing Central Land Consulting, Timothy N. Laps and Renae Eberhart, mineral owners representatives, citing alleged breach of contract and defamation.
Gary Imes and Gary Imes Associates filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court alleging tortious interference with business.
The plaintiffs allege that on May 16, 2016, Gary Imes and Gary Imes Associates entered into a contract with the defendant to secure agreements with land owners for pipeline rights of way. Despite securing agreements with land owners, the plaintiff did not received the commission promised by defendants, he claims.
The plaintiffs hold Central Land Consulting, Timothy N. Laps and Renae Eberhart responsible because the defendants allegedly wrongfully terminated his services without cause, refused to pay his commissions and made false and derogatory statements relating to his personal and business activities.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensatory and punitive damages, attorney's fees, costs and interest. They are represented by James R. Fox of Fox Law Office PLLC in Hurricane.
