A Georgia-based construction supply company is suing a Jefferson Parish construction business, alleging an outstanding debt owed for products sold on credit.

HD Supply Construction Supply, doing business as HD Supply Construction and Industrial, filed a lawsuit June 3 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Hard Rock Construction of Metairie, Jeffrey D. Young, and Carl E. Panebiango, alleging an unpaid credit balance for products sold.

According to the complaint, on May 4, 2010, Hard Rock signed a credit application for products it purchased from the plaintiff, and then signed another credit application Jan. 31, 2014. As of April 13, 2015, the suit says, the defendants had failed to pay $199,153.55.

The plaintiff sent a letter demanding payment and, later, the defendants payed a total of $59,945.60, leaving $139,207.95 unpaid, the lawsuit states. HD Supply also made a second demand May 4, 2015, which has gone unanswered, the suit says.

HD Supply Construction seeks the total unpaid amount, plus 1.5 percent interest per month from the invoice date, litigation costs and any other relief deemed just by the court. They are represented by attorneys Michael D. Fisse and Paul R. Trapani of Diagle Fisse & Kessenich in Covington.
