GRETNA – A subcontractor is suing the main contractor on a private school construction project for allegedly not paying for work completed.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for the principal amount owed, penalties and attorney's fees.

Mike Carson Construction Inc. is represented by attorney Wayne J. Jablonowski of Slidell.
