PHILADELPHIA – A Luxembourg-based corporation is suing a Pennsylvania-based corporation over an alleged failure to complete payments.
CTI Systems, SA filed a complaint on Aug. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Herr Industrial Inc., alleging violation of Uniform Foreign Money Judgment Recognition Act.
According to the complaint, in 2011, CTI and Herr were involved in a contract in which Herr agreed to pay for services provided by CTI. Although this was an international transaction, Herr agreed to pay for services received, the complaint states. In 2012, Herr allegedly was beginning to have difficulties in paying subcontractors for the services, and therefore the contract was amended. As of 2013, it was discovered that Herr had failed to pay a number of subcontractors, the plaintiff alleges. CTI is suing Herr for failure to uphold the agreement and the amendment to the agreement.
CTI seeks compensation for all lost wages and legal fees. It is represented by James C. Oschal of Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald LLP in Wilkes-Barre and by Matthew McClean of Davis & Kuelthau.
