CLEARWATER — A Pinellas County business is suing a New York land clearing operation, alleging breach of contract and bad faith.
Angelo's Aggregate Materials Ltd. filed a complaint July 10 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Holmgren Enterprises Inc., doing business as Viking Landclearing, alleging the defendant demanded additional payment of services rendered.
According to the complaint, between Dec. 18, 2017-Feb. 19, 2018, Angelo's Aggregate Materials entered into an agreement with Viking for a ground clearing job worth $118.542 at Angelo's facility in Pinellas County. After finishing the project, the suit says, Viking demanded an additional amount for the services rendered, totaling $256,430, despite being advised to evaluate the site and propose a cost estimate before starting the project. As a result, Angelo's says it has been damaged monetarily and continues to suffer damages.
The plaintiff alleges Viking Landclearing failed to evaluate and estimate the actual project and breached the agreement by demanding an additional amount of money for service rendered.
Angelo's Aggregate Materials seeks trial by jury, declaratory judgment that the amended agreement is enforceable, that Angelo's is not bound to pay any amounts in excess of the amounts listed in the amended agreement, and all other appropriate relief. It is represented by attorneys Marion Hale and Sharon E. Krick of Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel & Burns LLP in Clearwater.
