Supplier seeks millions in unpaid bills in business litigation

On Behalf of | Dec 12, 2018 | Business Litigation

Business relationships do not always stay positive. For many reasons, companies may find themselves at odds and need to resolve serious issues. While some companies can work together to reach resolutions, some cases may present the need for business litigation, especially if one side is being unreasonable.

Florida readers may be interested in a lawsuit involving a clothing supplier and LulaRoe, a marketing company that sells women’s clothing. Reports stated that the supplier has filed the suit, claiming that LulaRoe has failed to pay the supplier for the last seven months. This lack of payment has reportedly resulted in the supplier seeking $49 million in the lawsuit. The supplier reportedly contacted one of the company’s founders about the unpaid bills, but he allegedly stated that he would not be paying those bills unless ordered to do so by a judge.

LulaRoe issued a statement, indicating that the supplier’s claims were untrue and salacious. It plans to defend against the allegations brought by the supplier. The report also noted that LulaRoe has other debts, such as $1 million owed to UPS and over $3 million owed to manufacturers.

Being owed money in a business deal can be difficult to address. However, when the lack of payment goes on for some time and attempts to gain payment do not have the desired results, legal action may be necessary. If Florida business owners are facing similar difficulties, they may want to explore their business litigation options. Following this route may help them receive the payment they are owed.
