NEW ORLEANS – A ship supplier is asking the court’s help in retrieving payments allegedly owed to it by a transportation company.
Eagle Ship Supplies Inc. filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District Court of Louisiana against the vessel Robert J. Bouchard and Bouchard Transportation Co. Inc., alleging that the defendants owe it payment for services and goods.
Plaintiff alleges that it entered into a contract with defendants to provide necessary supplies to fleets owed by Bouchard Transportation for 2013 to 2015. The first services and goods were allegedly supplied to the Robert J. Bouchard for the amount of $2,847.74. Plaintiff alleges that it further supplied defendant’s other vessels for the amount of $17,818.44. However, Eagle Ship alleges that it has yet to be paid. It alleges that the total amount owed to them is $20,666.18, plus interest.
It is asking the court to issue an order for the defendants to appear in court to answer the claims, issue a maritime attachment and garnishment on the vessel Robert J. Bouchard, issue a request that the Robert J. Bouchard be condemned and sold to pay the amounts due to Eagle Ship Supplies, award them damages plus interest and the cost of the lawsuit, and any other further relief deemed just by the court. It is represented by Steven E. Psarellis in New Orleans.
