A hearing on a plaintiff motion for summary judgment has been set for Dec. 12 in Orleans Parish Civil District court in a case involving a roofing company suing the New Orleans Music Hall of Fame (NOMHF) for unpaid work.

Reroof America Corp. is suing the NOMHF for allegedly failing to pay almost $85,000 in roofing work completed on the Hall's property on South Rampart Street in New Orleans.

Covington attorneys Christina Gaudin and Mark Higdon filed the original petition for damages in February 2009. The petition included copies of two contracts signed by NOMHF agent Jerome "Popa Gee" Johnson for roofing work.

In April 2010, plaintiff counsel filed a motion for summary judgment arguing that "there is no question of material fact that Reroof fully performed its obligations set forth in the contract and that NOMHF is in breach of contract for its failure to pay Reroof for services rendered."

New Orleans attorney Wayne Garrett is representing NOMHF. There is no record of a defense opposition to the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment.
