Cy-Fair resident sued over equipment
A West U. business and Cy-Fair resident are being sued after allegedly claiming that equipment sold in a levy sale had been lost in a hurricane.
Gehl Co. filed a lawsuit on March 8 in the Harris County District Court against Houston Kaco in West U. and Kenneth Banks, of Cy-Fair, alleging breach of contract and fraud.
Gehl says that in 2005, it entered into an installment contract, selling the defendants a Mustang Model skid steer loader, a 66-foot Loflin Grapple Bucket and a 16-foot Belshe Trailer, but the defendants breached this contract by failing to make timely payments. When Gehl attempted to repossess the equipment, the defendants fraudulently stated that it had been lost in a hurricane, when in fact, it had been liquidated in a levy sale, according to the brief.
Gehl is seeking all damages to which it is entitled, attorney’s fees and court costs. It is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Andrew Lemanski.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-14604.
