PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia roof supply company has initiated litigation against a local contractor, arguing it was not paid more than $10,000 for merchandise and services it provided to that contractor.
Stelwagon Roofing Supply, Inc. of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 26 versus Marv’s General Contracting, LLC, also of Philadelphia.
Through a period of time spanning July 2014 to August 2015, Marv’s purchased merchandise from Stelwagon, and the lawsuit says Stelwagon properly provided that merchandise to the defendant at a cost of $10,832.76, the suit says.
However, the plaintiff says Marv’s defaulted on its debt in that same amount and has not compensated the latter for it, despite repeated demands.
“Although demand therefore has been made, there is now due, owing and unpaid from defendant to plaintiff the sum of $10832.76, for merchandise and/or services and finance charges, profit and ordinary burden. As a result of all the aforementioned, the defendant became unjustly enriched at plaintiff’s expense,” the suit says.
For counts of breach of contract and unjust enrichment, the plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of $10,832.76, plus costs.
The plaintiff is represented by Steven Koplove of Stelwagon Roofing Supply, Inc., in Philadelphia.
