NEW ORLEANS – A trucking company claims a mortgage service company owes it more than $12,000 for construction work.
Moore & Moore Trucking LLC and J.L. Moore Construction filed suit against AMC Mortgage Services Inc. and Blanche Adams in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Sept. 19.
On Sept. 23, 2011, Blanche Adams and AMC Mortgage Services entered into a contractual agreement with Moore & Moore Trucking and J.L. Moore Construction. The contract allegedly stipulated the plaintiffs would tear down and remove concrete slab from the defendants’ residence located at 7610 Avalon Way in New Orleans. On Aug. 18 the defendants filed a claim with Fidelity National Property & Casualty Ins. Co. for $12,340.
Once Blanche Adams and AMC Mortgage Services received the sum from Fidelity, they were to forward the payment to the plaintiff for the work completed on the concrete slab. However, AMC Mortgage Services no longer exists, making Blanche Adams solely responsible for returning the obtained funds, the suit says. The defendant has allegedly failed to provide the funds thus far, constituting a breach of contract with Moore & Moore Trucking and J.L. Moore Construction.
Attorney Zara Zeringue represents the plaintiffs.
The case has been assigned to Div. I Judge Piper D. Griffin.
Case no. 2014-09227.
