GRETNA – A Jefferson Parish refrigeration repair service company is suing a Marrero restaurant for defaulting on a payment for repairs completed in their walk-in freezer.
Farrel Prince and J&J Commercial LLC filed suit against New Orleans Breakfast and Pancake House LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on Dec. 19. Prince and J&J Commercial claim they provided work on a walk-in freezer owned by New Orleans Breakfast and Pancake House, but when they cashed the check for $967 provided by the restaurant the check was returned for insufficient funds. The plaintiffs claim that after the check was returned they requested payment from the defendant, but have not received anything.
Damages are being sought in the amount of $1,934, twice the amount of the original work completed per state statute as the correct penalty for insufficient funds. In addition, the plaintiff is requesting the defendant pay legal interest, attorney’s fees and court costs.
Prince and J&J Commercial are represented by Joseph B. Harvin of the Slidell-based Harvin Law Firm.
The case has been assigned to Division M Judge Henry Sullivan Jr.
Case no. 722-233.
