HARRISBURG — The United States is suing a Jersey City insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
The United States of America, for the use and benefits of Warner Construction, a Division of R.W. Warner Inc., filed a lawsuit Dec. 29 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Arch Insurance Company, alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, Ironbridge Construction Inc. entered into contract with the U.S. Department of Defense for renovation of a facility in Fairfield, Pennsylvania. Ironbridge obtained a payment bond from the defendant and directed Warner to supply necessary labor and material, and the suit states Warner fulfilled the duties outlined and sent 13 invoices for the labor between January 2014 and March 2015, totaling $356,681.73.
The suit states Ironbridge paid Warner only $131,012.09 and refused to pay the balance, therefore breaching the contract.
The United States and Warner Construction seek damages of $225,669.64, plus all costs and fees and a jury trial. The plaintiffs are represented by attorney Thomas S. Beckley of Beckley & Madden in Harrisburg.
