Apache lawsuit moved to US District Court

Keywords: Tags  Apache Stainless Equipment, Alaska Structures, lawsuit, Rey Mashayekhi


NEW YORK — A Wisconsin stainless steel manufacturer’s lawsuit against a former client seeking allegedly unpaid fees relating to a canceled order is being moved to U.S. District Court.

Beaver Dam, Wis.-based Apache Stainless Equipment Corp. filed a lawsuit in Dodge County (Wis.) Circuit Court in June against fabric shelter designer Alaska Structures Inc., claiming it was owed $591,287 in unpaid fees relating to a February 2012 order for 20 250-kilowatt generators. Alaska Structures told the manufacturer in May 2012 that it was canceling the order and sent a letter in July 2012 saying it would not pay any outstanding fees relating to the purchase order, according to court documents.

Apache Stainless alleges that Alaska Structures owes more than $424,887 for generator parts minus credit for parts returned, as well as $166,400 as a 10-percent cancellation fee.

Alaska Structures filed a notice of removal Aug. 22 that will move the civil action to U.S. District Court in Wisconsin because the amount sought in compensatory damages exceeds the jurisdictional amount of $75,000, exclusive of interest and costs, adjudicated by Dodge County Circuit Court.

Attorneys for Apache Stainless and Alaska Structures could not be reached for comment.
