ORLANDO – A manufacturer alleges an Arizona company did not pay for several million dollars' worth of helicopters and components.
EP Aviation LLC filed a complaint on Oct. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against InTran LLC alleging breach of purchase agreement.
According to the complaint, in April and May 2015, EP Aviation LLC entered into a contract pursuant to which defendant agreed to purchase four Bell214ST helicopters and components from plaintiff with a purchase price of $7.5 million. The plaintiff alleges that the defendant refused to take delivery of or pay for the components and inventory by the dates specified under the contract, thereby causing plaintiff to suffer damages in an amount of more than $3 million and loss of its net profit due under the contract, despite having applied the defendant's $1.25 million prepayment.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendant, compensatory damages in an amount of more than $1.75 million, pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and further relief as the court may deem just. It is represented by Frederick S. Wermuth and Taylor F. Ford of King, Blackwell, Zehnder & Wermuth PA in Orlando and William J. Dorsey of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP in Chicago.
