PHILADELPHIA – A New Jersey-based provider of premium fish oils, vegetable oils and other products initiated legal action against an Omega-3 fish oil manufacturer, for an unpaid sum connected to goods it says it supplied the latter business.
Icelandirect, Inc. of Clifton, N.J. filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Nov. 8 versus Nutrifynn Caps, Inc., of Philadelphia.
At Nutrifynn’s request, Icelandirect sold it certain goods. But the plaintiff claims the defendant did not pay it for those services rendered in the amount of $67,372.60 along with statutory interest at a rate of six percent, which amounts to $3,798.71 and leads to a grand total of $71,171.31.
“Plaintiff has made demand against defendant for the aforesaid sum, but defendant failed or refused to pay the same or any part thereof,” the suit states.
The plaintiff also believes the defendant was unjustly enriched in this matter and “allowing defendant to retain the benefit of said goods without paying fair compensation would be unjust.”
For breach of contract, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $71,171.31, plus interest at an annual rate of six percent from Nov. 8, plus costs of suit and all other relief to which plaintiff may be entitled. Alternatively, for a count of unjust enrichment, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $67,372.60, plus interest at an annual rate of six percent from Nov. 8, plus costs of suit and all other relief to which plaintiff may be entitled.
The plaintiff is represented by Benjamin J. Lewis, Michael R. Lessa, John R. Keating and Daniel A. Wechsler of Amato Keating & Lessa, in Bethlehem.
