The plaintiff publishes the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, and the defendant requested advertising space in those publications for given and pre-determined prices. From time to time, the defendant received monthly statements of the balance due and owing plaintiff, and accepted the same without objection.
By virtue of the foregoing, the suit says there is presently due and owing by defendant the sum of $15,398.40, which includes all costs of collection and attorney’s fees of $2,566.40 in accordance with the terms of sale, published in the newspapers of general circulation and the rate books, and the defendant received the benefit of services without making restitution to the plaintiff, according to the lawsuit.
For counts of breach of contract and unjust enrichment, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $15,398.40, plus interest at six percent from June 2, 2017 and costs on both counts.
The plaintiff is represented by James W. Adelman of Morris & Adelman, in Bala Cynwyd.
