MOUNDSVILLE – A Pennsylvania construction company has filed suit against the owners of a Marshall County property over allegations it is owed more than $3 million for the installation work of a fresh water pipeline on the property.
Auman Bros. Construction LLC filed a suit against APP Minerals LLC in Marshall Circuit Court seeking to enforce a mechanic's lien and over allegations of unjust enrichment.
The suit states Auman Bros. was hired in October 2018 by the defendant to construct the American Petroleum Partners Narrow Sea Water Pipeline on a more than 258-acre property in Marshall County. Auman Bros. alleges it worked on the project until April and claims it is still owed for the labor, equipment and project materials amounting to $3.9 million. Prior to filing the suit, the plaintiff filed a mechanic's lien on the property.
The plaintiff seeks relief for the amount owed and the marshalling of other liens placed on the property as well as pre-judgment and post-judgment costs and attorney's fees. It is represented by Michael A. Jacks of Jacks Legal Group in Morgantown.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David Hummel.
