A Cook County business filed suit against one of its wholesale customers for alleged negligence in a 2014 disagreement.
Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Co. Inc. of Wheeling brought suit May 26 in Cook County Circuit Court against D D Industries of Chicago (“DD”) claiming liability in a series of events over the course of several months in 2014.
The suit states that the plaintiff supplied DD with pet foods for resale to retailers; that when DD made verbal offers to buy the products, Evanger’s accepted the offers, manufactured the goods, and delivered the products to the defendant.
According to the complaint, at least three orders that were requested by the defendant; shipped, and accepted during the months of July, August and November of 2014 were not paid for despite Evanger’s alleged follow-up requests. The plaintiff alleges that its agreement with the defendant constitutes enforceable oral contracts; that by failing to pay for the merchandise, DD was in breach of contract to the plaintiff.
Evanger’s requests damages in the exact amount of $32,558.44; plus attorney’s fees and costs. The company is represented in the case by attorney Gregory Bedell of Knabe, Kroning & Bedell in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number: 2015L0005322.
