DONALDSONVILLE – An oil supply company is suing a landscaping provider for failing to pay a credit account.

Central Oil and Supply Corporation filed suit on Jan. 23 in the 23rd Judicial District Court against Craft Enterprises and Clayton Craft.

The plaintiff alleges it first advanced a credit account of $3,000 to Craft in 2008. Central claims the defendant charged $5,312.07 to the account over a three month period from the end of 2009 into the beginning of 2012. The plaintiff asserts shortly after Craft discontinued charging credit to his account that the company formally requested repayment on Feb. 24, 2010 and has since not received repayment.

At the time of the request for repayment Craft Enterprises also received a violation and fine from the Louisiana State Board of Licensing for Contractors for acting as a contractor without a license, the complaint says.

The plaintiff is seeking damages in the amount of the outstanding debt of $5,312.07.

Central is being represented by Russell A. Woodard, Jr. of Monroe-based Breithaupt, Dunn, Dubos, Shafto and Wolleson.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge John L. Peytavin.

Case number 102491
