PHILADELPHIA – A metal processing company has initiated litigation against a rigging and metals shipping firm in state court, in the pursuit of reconciling an outstanding account balance of more than $20,000.
Metals USA Plates & Shapes, Inc. of Langhorne filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Feb. 16 versus Chowns Fabrication & Rigging, Inc. and Kevin Chowns, both of Skippack.
The principal business of Chowns Fabrication & Rigging is the fabrication and shipping of complete metal building systems. Through mutual agreement between the parties, plaintiff sold defendants goods and merchandise – and according to the lawsuit, there remains an outstanding balance of $20,802.27.
Although repeated demands have been made for payment of the outstanding balance referred to, the defendant allegedly refuses without justification to reconcile it. Though, a personal guaranty was signed by Chowns for the amount in question on April 2, 2014.
For breach of contract and unjust enrichment, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $20,802.27, plus continuing interest, costs, reasonable attorney’s fees and such other relief as the Court deems just and proper.
The plaintiff is represented by John H. Filice of Rubin Glickman Steinberg & Gifford, in Lansdale.
