Software company files breach of contract lawsuit against county

Posted by William J. Cook | Nov 21, 2018 | 0 Comments

With the ever-advancing nature of technology, companies in Florida and elsewhere may experience the need to upgrade their operating systems from time to time. When a company chooses to enlist the services of another party to assist with upgrades, any disagreements concerning payments for services rendered could leave all parties involved engaged in contract disputes. A software company has recently filed a lawsuit, accusing a county in another state of breach of contract.

According to reports, the incident began when the county reached out to Spartan Tec and provided the software company with a detailed list of requested products. The company claims that it performed a variety of services for the county over recent months. However, it asserts that the county has failed to provide payment for services rendered.

The company states that it is owed just under $140,000 and says that the lack of payment has left it facing just over $90,000 in debt with product suppliers. The company also asserts that the county attempted to return some of the items it purchased, even though Spartan made it clear that product returns were not authorized. After attempting to pursue payment on several occasions, the company has recently decided to pursue restitution through a breach of contract lawsuit.

Disagreements over payment for services rendered can lead to complex contract disputes that may leave all parties involved preparing for litigation. Those who feel that a breach of contract has taken place may wish to prepare for what comes next by seeking the advice of an experienced attorney early in the process. An attorney can examine the situation and assist a client in Florida in pursuing restitution through a claim against the party or parties deemed responsible.
