NEW ORLEANS – Despite consistently paying off its debt to the defendant, a New Orleans non-profit organization claims it is not being allowed to complete a contract.
Unity in the Community, formerly known as Elijah Melancon Christian Ministries, a non-profit corporation filed suit against David Warren in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract in which the plaintiff agreed to buy and the defendant to sell certain immovable property for the sum of $225,000.
The plaintiff claims that when the contract was executed, they paid the defendant a deposit of $15,000. The contract states that an act of sale shall be passed before seller’s notary on or before March 14, 2005. The defendant failed to appoint a notary and never advised the plaintiff as to the location and time of the passing of sale, the suit claims.
The plaintiff is prepared to follow through with the contract, but in the event that the defendant does not answer, it seeks relief for breach of contract, monthly payments made in addition to repairs and renovations to the property completed in excess of $180,000.
The plaintiff is represented by attorney Vance W. Ott of Metairie.
The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Lloyd J. Medley.
Case no. 2013-06804.
