Commercial litigation pending as a result of withheld payment

It is not far-fetched to say that most Texas company owners want any projects they participate in to go smoothly. Unfortunately, any number of details could go wrong at any minute, and in some cases, the issue could pertain to receiving payment for their services. Though it may seem as if companies should obviously receive compensation for work they do, that payment does not always come, and commercial litigation may be necessary.

A construction company in another state is currently facing this type of predicament. Recent reports stated that the company was subcontracted to work on a penguin exhibit at a Ripley's Aquarium. Ripley's had hired a general contractor that subcontracted to the plaintiff to the project. The subcontractor claims that the general contractor has not provided a final payment for the project, which has led to a legal claim.

The general contractor issued a comment, stating that the payment was not issued because of damage that occurred to the exhibit during its installation. The general contractor apparently holds the subcontractor responsible for the damage and does not plan to release the payment until the damages are addressed. Though Ripley's is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit, that company indicated that the issue is between the construction companies.

Most companies are no stranger to facing legal issues. Still, it is a hindrance to have to go through such measures in order to obtain due payment. If Texas business owners are facing this type of ordeal, they may find it useful to explore their best possible options for addressing the issues at hand, even if those options include commercial litigation.
