HANNIBAL –– A Michigan construction company faces a lawsuit from the government for allegedly not paying a subtractor helping to build a levee in Chariton. 

The United States, on behalf of Klocke Inc., filed the complaint on Oct. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri against Nisou LGC JV and the surety bond holder, Lexon Insurance Company. 

According to the complaint, LGC subtracted with Klocke to perform excavation, compaction, dirt hauling and rut repair. Afterward, Klocke sent LGC invoices totaling approximately $284,000. But the subcontractor says LGC did not pay.

LGC faces claims of breach of contract and quantum merit. The insurance company faces a claim under the federal Miller Act.

The plaintiff seeks a jury trial. The plaintiff is represented by G. Steven Ruprecht of the law firm Brown & Ruprecht PC.
