Linbeck sues City of Bellaire in payment dispute over Evelyn Park project




In its petition, filed by  G. Stewart Whitehead of WINSTEAD PC today (9/21/2017), Linbeck Group, LLC, asserts breach-of-contract and prompt-payment-act claims, and seeks damages somewhere within the range of $200,000 - $1 million (the pleading rules do not require a precise dollar figure). As is typical in cases of this nature, the company also seeks to recover attorney's fees incurred in pursuing its claim in court. The freshly filed case was randomly assigned to the 152nd District Court (Judge Robert Schaffer).
