GRETNA—A company is seeking damages, claiming that a customer never paid a contractor for work he did after Hurricane Katrina.
120 West Partners LLC filed a suit on May 8 against Frederick Leonard and Mirando Leonard in the 24th Judicial District Court alleging breach of contract.
The suit states that the defendants entered into a shoring contract with Patterson Structural Moving and Shoring LLC on on Feb. 9, 2011 and that the defendants issued a promissory note in the form of $30,000 provided by a grant from the State of Louisiana.
