NEW ORLEANS – A local subcontractor working on a Recovery School District elementary school is suing for nearly $300,000 in damages after it was allegedly not paid for services and materials provided.

Interior Systems of Louisiana filed suit against Continental Casualty Company and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court.

Interior Systems acted as a subcontractor on a Recovery School District project, installing framing, acoustical ceilings, and drywall during construction of the new Lawerence D. Crocker School in New Orleans.

The plaintiff alleges that Liberty Mutual and Continental Casualty Company as well as the main contractor Satterfield and Pontikes Construction Inc. provided a payment bond assuring it would pay suppliers of materials used in the project. Interior Systems claims it has not yet been paid.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

Interior Systems requests damages of $283,668.31 plus interest and attorney’s fees.

Interior Systems is represented by Francis R. White III of Covington.

The case has been assigned to Division A Judge Tiffany Chase.

Case no. 2013-10746.
