Empire Comfort Systems has filed suit against a North Carolina corporation, alleging it failed to pay nearly $90,000 for merchandise it purchased on credit.

Empire claims Re-New Hearth and Fire purchased merchandise on an open account between July 2008 and February 2009. On Feb. 16, 2009, Re-New entered into a repayment agreement with Empire and ordered additional products from the company since then, according to the complaint filed March 23 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

However, Re-New has failed to make payments to Empire for the merchandise it received, the suit states.

"To date, the total amount outstanding and owed by the Defendant to Plaintiff is the principal sum of $89,831.75," the complaint says.

In addition to the money it says it is owed, Empire is seeking pre-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

It will be represented by Deanna L. Litzenburg and Laura E. Craft of Mathis, Marifian and Richter in Belleville.

St. Clair Circuit Court case number: 10-L-138.
