PHILADELPHIA – A Pennsylvania-based equipment leasing company believes a pair of defendants from Chicago are indebted to it for more than $19,000 after their alleged default on a lease agreement entered into last year.
Beneficial Equipment Finance Corp. of Chester Springs filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 29 versus Apollo Health, Inc. and guarantor Brian Weinstein, both of Chicago.
On March 2, 2016, the defendants entered into a lease agreement for $17,153.40 with Conestoga Equipment Finance Corp., the suit says. Later, the plaintiff acquired Conestoga and Beneficial acquired its rights, title and interest in its obligations, the suit says. The plaintiff’s business was in leasing equipment.
According to the alleged agreement, the defendants were to make 60 monthly payments of $285.89 until the entire balance was repaid in full – and did so until April 5 of this year, when the payments allegedly stopped and the defendants defaulted on the lease agreement.
With an unpaid balance of $15,243.66 and attorneys fees of $3,810.92, the lawsuit states that the total cost owed by the defendants is $19,054.58. Per the plaintiff, it says repeated demands have been made of the defendants to repay these costs, but to no avail.
For counts of breach of contract and unjust enrichment, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $19,054.58, plus interest, costs and attorney’s fees that may accrue and such other and further relief as this Court may deem equitable and just.
The plaintiff is represented by Robert L. Saldutti of Saldutti Law Group, in Philadelphia.
