NEW ORLEANS – A Harvey business alleges it was not paid for services it delivered to a barge.
Total Marine Services of Jefferson Inc. filed a complaint on Oct. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against the barge BMS I and Pro-test Pipeline Services LLC
alleging breach of contract, unjust enrichment and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in July 2015, plaintiff furnished labor, materials, and necessaries to defendant BMS I and the sum amount of $133,576.91, inclusive of interest as of Sept. 30, remains uncollected. The plaintiff holds The Barge BMS 1 and Pro-test Pipeline Services LLC responsible because despite amicable demand for payment, defendant Pro-test allegedly failed to pay the balance due.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order directing defendants to satisfy its indebtedness, plus interests and other expenses, attorneys’ fees, an order and warrant for the arrest of the BMS 1 and that the barge be condemned and sold to pay same and for such other relief as justice may require. It is represented by Jason P. Waguespack, Frederick W. Swaim III and Alexander L. Williams of Galloway, Johnson, Tompkins, Burr and Smith in New Orleans.
