PHILADELPHIA — A construction company is suing Philadelphia city officials, citing breach of contract.
D.A. Nolt Inc. filed a complaint on Nov. 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against The Philadelphia Municipal Authority and City Philadelphia, alleging the defendants breached the agreement on the contract by failing to pay for all costs under the project.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 23, 2015, D.A. Nolt Inc. was instructed by the defendants to proceed with the project as the City of Philadelphia desired to relocate its headquarters. Plaintiff claims it completed the project in a good and workmanlike manner, but has not received payment of more than $2.56 million.
The plaintiff holds The Philadelphia Municipal Authority and City of Philadelphia responsible because the defendants allegedly failed and refused to pay plaintiff the amount due and owing for the work it performed on the project.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in the amount of $2,564,329.37 plus interest, costs of suit, attorneys' fees, and other such relief as the Court deems just and proper. They are represented by George Pallas of Cogen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC in Philadelphia.
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 2:18-cv-04997-GEKP.
