NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans-based law firm is suing a jet parts seller and a jet engine manufacturer over alleged defects.

Gauthier, Houghtaling & Wiliams LLP filed suit against Ram Aircraft and Aero Premier Jet Center in the New Orleans Civil District Court on June 19.

The firm claims it bought two jet engines from the defendants with a life expectancy of 1,800 hours each. The plaintiff alleges that beginning after 380 of usage the engines began to have malfunctions that lasted two years after their purchase in June 2008 until May 2012 when there were significant problems with the engines including repeated low oil pressure problems.

In May 2012 the plaintiff asserts the aircraft had to be grounded and is now unsafe to fly.

The defendant is accused of negligence, denying rehibition and negligent repair.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for sale and negligent repair.

The plaintiff is represented by its own attorney Frederick W. Bradley.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Lloyd J. Medley.

Case number 2012-06026.
