SANTA ANA – A Coto de Caza corporation is alleged to owe millions for shipments of seafood.
Seaexport CA and Inversiones Marinas Del Lago CA filed a complaint on Dec. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Mead Corp. alleging breach of written contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that from 2013 to 2015, they sold shrimp to the defendant. They allege the defendants have not paid for the shrimp in full.
The plaintiffs hold Mead Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed provide an explanation as to why it had not paid for goods previously shipped and failed to respond to repeated communications.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, for damages in the amount of $2,441,410, prejudgment interest, and further relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Stephen L. Bucklin of Bucklin Law Firm APC in Los Angeles.
