GRETNA – A local elevation company is suing a homeowner and a general contractor after they were allegedly not paid for work they did on a home elevation as part of a subcontract.
Elevations Shoring LLC filed suit against Gulf Atlantic Contractors LLC, Whitestone Management and Trading LLC, Whitestone LLC and Isaac Franklin in the 24th Judicial District Court on Sept. 19.
Elevations Shoring claims it was contracted on June 1 to provide custom materials and labor for the elevation of a residence located at 5817 Lacombe Ave. in Marrero. The plaintiff alleges that Gulf Atlantic had entered into an agreement with the property owner Isaac Franklin to act as the general contractor. Elevations Shoring asserts that despite the contract being completed it never received full payment for the materials and labor provided on the project. The plaintiff claims it received a check, but it was returned marked “insufficient funds” and no money was deposited into its account.
The defendants are accused of breach of contract.
Damages in the amount of $18,855 plus attorney’s fees, legal interest and court costs are sought by the plaintiffs.
Elevations Shoring is represented by Donald E. Mckay Jr. of New Orleans-based Leake & Anderson LLP.
The case has been assigned to Division J Judge Stephen C. Grefer.
Case no. 731-200.
