SAN FRANCISCO – A Fresno company claims it was not completely paid for work done on a federal project.
United States of America, for the use and benefit of J.I. Garcia Construction Inc., filed a complaint on June 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Travelers Casualty and Surety Co. of America alleging that the insurance firm failed to pay plaintiff upon the completion of its work.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in May 4, 2015, J.I. Garcia Construction Inc. entered into an agreement with Blackhawk Ventures as a subcontractor for interior renovations of government-owned buildings. Upon completion of their work, plaintiff was not paid for the two additive changes made to the original project and was only paid for the price of the original contract, the suit states. The plaintiff holds Travelers Casualty and Surety Co. of America responsible because the defendant is liable under the bond to pay plaintiffs for the amount due from Blackhawk.
The plaintiff seeks damages in the amount of $110,412.64, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Patrick J. Gorman of Wild, Carter & Tipton in Fresno.
