A Philadelphia accounting firm has filed a breach of contract claim against an online business specializing in offering health and fitness advice over allegations that the defendant has a large outstanding bill for services.
Attorney Francis X. Grimes, of the Jenkintown, Pa. firm Stock & Grimes, LLP, filed a civil action March 19 at the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas on behalf of Citrin Cooperman & Company LLP.
The lawsuit claims that King of Prussia, Pa.-based Internet Fitness LLC and Internetfitness.com Inc., have failed to compensate the plaintiff for accounting and tax services that the firm conducted on behalf of the defendants.
Citrin Cooperman claims that it is owed $52,500.
“Despite repeated demand for payment by Plaintiff and or its representatives, Defendants have failed and/or refused to make payment on the invoices submitted to Defendants by Plaintiff,” the complaint reads.
The lawsuit accuses the defendants of unjustly enriching themselves by not having paid for the services provided by the accounting firm.
“The Plaintiff mailed to the Defendants account statements when the Defendants utilized the Plaintiff’s services and continued to mail account statements reflecting account activity, and therefore, an account was stated by virtue of the Defendants receipt and acceptance of those statements,” the lawsuit states. “The Defendants continued use of the Plaintiff’s services and Defendants acceptance of the account statements [were] received without objection.”
Citrin Cooperman seeks damages in excess of $50,000, plus the costs of litigation.
