Pace Analytical Services sues Upper Kanawha Valley Development Corp. for unjust enrichment

WINFIELD – Pace Analytical Services is suing Upper Kanawha Valley Development Corp. after it claims it failed to pay for work performed and was unjustly enriched at Pace’s expense.

Pace and UKVD entered into a contract in which Pace agreed to perform testing services for the defendant and the defendant agreed to pay Pace for its work, plus reasonable expenses, according to a complaint filed in Putnam Circuit Court.

 Pace claims it has fully and completely performed its obligations under the contract and, upon completion, it tendered invoices to UKVD in the amount of $21,592.50 for services and work performed.

To date, the defendant has failed or refused to pay for the services performed, according to the suit.

Pace claims the defendant breached its contract and has caused the plaintiff to sustain economic damage and harm in the amount of $21,592.50 together with aggravation, annoyance, inconvenience and consequential and incidental damages.

UKVD has been unjustly enriched at Pace’s expense and has received an economic benefit by way of the services provided by Pace, according to the suit.

Pace is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. It is being represented by Travis W. Hoffman of Tyree Embree and Associates.

The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Phillip Stowers.
