PITTSBURGH – Southern Polymer Inc. is suing a buyer over allegations that the defendant breached its contract.
Southern Polymer Inc. of Georgia filed a complaint Dec. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Master Extrusion LLC of Alabama, claiming breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff is a polymer and resin distributor. The defendant was a customer of the plaintiff's and allegedly purchased a large amount of a product known as "wide spec," and later claimed that it was not suitable for their needs.
