PITTSBURGH — A subcontractor is suing a construction contractor, citing alleged breach of contract and failure to pay for completed work.
Wyatt Inc. filed a complaint on April 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Turner Construction Co., alleging that the contractor failed to comply with their subcontracting agreement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it agreed to provide the labor and materials necessary to complete the project for 19 months. Due to delays and disruptions beyond its control, its work spanned 41 months, which caused it to incur additional expenses, according to the suit. As a direct and proximate result of defendant's breaches of its obligations, the plaintiff has suffered damages in excess of $5,312,958.89, the suit says. The plaintiff holds Turner Construction Co. responsible because the defendant allegedly improperly failed and refused to make full payment, among other counts.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in its favor and against defendant in an amount in excess of $5,312,958.89, plus interest, cost of suit, and other relief as the court deems just, proper and equitable. It is represented by Lisa M. Wampler and Lori W. Azzara of Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC in Pittsburgh.
