ORLANDO — A couple is suing Mystic Granite & Marble Inc., a stone distributor, citing alleged deceptive and unfair trade practices, breach of oral contract and breach of express warranty.
John D. Mantione and Margaret J. Mantione filed a complaint on July 5 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they chose three unique slabs of marble on Aug. 27, 2016 that were to be used as countertops in their kitchen and bathrooms. However, the polished and honed slabs that were delivered allegedly were not the slabs they had originally selected. The plaintiffs allegedly have suffered damages from the defendant's alleged attempt to conceal its mistakes and from the costs of removing the erroneous marble, installing new marble and the delay in their renovations.
The plaintiffs hold the defendant responsible for allegedly claiming that the marble selected by the plaintiffs would be the same slabs of marble that would be delivered, and for allegedly attempting to conceal its errors via alterations made to the end numbers on the selected slabs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant for damages, attorneys’ fees and costs, pre-judgment interest, litigation costs and for any other relief the court deems proper. They are represented by Alan B. Taylor of Alan B. Taylor & Associates PA in Orlando.
