A suit asking for more than $300,000 in owed phone and internet service payments is set for a status conference July 13.

The suit, brought in St. Clair County by AT&T, seeks moneys it claims to be owed due to breach of contract and the defendant's unjust enrichment.

In the suit filed earlier this year, AT&T claims that defendant Applied Personal Computing Inc. d/b/a APCI and APCI DSL Inc. contracted with it to provide telecommunications, internet and phone services. The plaintiff claims to have had a contract.

AT&T alleges that Applied Computing did not pay for services. It claims the amount is in excess of $329,740.81.

AT&T claims its contract was breached and that by breaching the contract, Applied Computing was unjustly enriched.

The telecommunications company is asking for damages including the back billed amounts, termination and shortfall charges, interest, costs and attorneys' fees.

According to the court file, Applied Computing has yet to answer AT&T's complaint.

AT&T is represented by Stephanie Loughner of Denver, Colo. and Robert Wuller Jr. of Belleville.

The status conference is scheduled for 9:30 a.m.

St. Clair County Circuit Judge Patrick Young is presiding.

The case is St. Clair case number 09-L-080.
