GRAFTON – A Flemington man alleges a Thornton-based coal company failed to pay him money due under an agreement.
Timothy E. Corrothers filed a complaint in Taylor Circuit Court against Rebekah Coal Co. Inc., A. Blaine Jennings alleging breach of contract.
The suit states that the plaintiff entered into an agreement with the defendants on July 3, 2005, to jointly work together to remove coal from Sylvia Farm in Taylor County.
