PRINCETON — A Mercer County asphalt manufacturer is suing a paving and excavating company and its agent, alleging breach of contract and fraud.
AAA Paving and Sealing Inc. filed a complaint in Mercer Circuit Court against Virginia Asphalt Paving LLC and Jack Smith, alleging failure to pay the plaintiff nearly $52,000 for materials provided, other than the interest payment it made in June.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 27, 2017, AAA Paving and Sealing was contacted by Smith to provide asphalt to Virginia Asphalt Paving with Smith's express promise to pay for it.
However the suit says, AAA Paving has not received any payments. The plaintiff alleges Virginia Asphalt Paving and Smith, despite receiving invoices for the ordered goods and services, has an outstanding balance of $51,946.09.
AAA Paving and Sealing seeks trial by jury, payment of $51,946.09, compensatory damages, exemplary or punitive damages, attorney fees and costs, plus pre- and post-judgment interests. It is represented by attorney Harold B. Wolfe III of Princeton.
