CLEARWATER — A Pinellas County roofing business is suing a customer, alleging unjust enrichment in failing to pay more than $7,500.
Above Average Roofing Inc. filed a complaint Oct. 17 in the Pinellas Circuit Court against Jeffrey Thaler, alleging breach of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 6, 2016, Above Average Roofing entered into a contract with Thaler for the installation of a new roof at 2100 Seventh Ave. N., St. Petersburg. The suit says the plaintiff has suffered monetary damages because Thaler has refused to pay $7,525 for the completed services performed.
The plaintiff alleges Thaler has breached the express, constructive or implied requirements of the contract by failing to make the payment due, and accepted and retained the benefit conferred by plaintiff without paying the value thereof.
Above Average Roofing seeks trial by jury, judgment for the $7,525 value of the labor, services, and materials provided, interest, court costs and all further relief the court deems proper. It is represented by attorney Theo J. Karaphillis of Law Office of Theo J. Karaphillis PLLC in Clearwater.
