Cy-Fair company named in truck stop construction suit
A retail motor fuel outlet owner is suing after paying over $2.7 million to construct a truck stop and convenience store.
Shawn Ibrahum Inc. filed a lawsuit on Jan. 14 in the Harris County District Court against Suncoast Environmental and Construction of Cy-Fair, Spring-area Sunnyland Development, Ajaz Siddiqui and Najeeb Siddiqui, alleging breach of contract, breach of warranties, violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act and fraud.
Ibrahum says that in July 2004, it contracted with the defendants to provide general contracting services in a truck stop/convenience store project. According to the brief, Ibrahum paid over $2.7 million to the defendants to insure they would hire competent, reputable professionals and to guarantee that the design and construction of the project would be compliant with the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality regulations.
The defendants failed to provide, build and install equipment and materials that comply with state and local government regulations, states Ibrahum.
Ibrahum is seeking actual, consequential and exemplary damages, as well as attorney’s fees and court costs. It is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Herbert Fortson III.
