PITTSBURGH — A Pennsylvania corporation is suing Eastham & Associates; Eastham & Associates of Ohio LLP; and land surveyor Ronald L. Eastham, individually and d/b/a Easthman & Associates, alleging professional negligence, breach of warranty and breach of contract.
Speedway LLC filed a complaint on Dec. 1 in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County against the defendants, alleging that the plaintiff was damaged as a result of an error in a professional survey at a gas station/convenience store site in North Versailles.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Speedway LLC incurred monetary damages due to the increased construction costs and lost profits due to the delay of the project. The plaintiff holds Eastham & Associates; Eastham & Associates of Ohio, LLP; and Ronald L. Eastham, and d/b/a Easthman & Associates responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly perform the work in a workmanlike manner based on their agreement with the plaintiff.
