A Fayette County vending company has filed a civil lawsuit in Uniontown seeking more than $100,000 from a competitor it says took over its exclusive contract with a West Virginia hospital.

In the lawsuit, CRH Catering of Dunbar Township is seeking $64,463 in lost sales, along with more than $50,000 in punitive damages, from James Vending of North Union.

Through attorney Zachary Kansler of Greensburg, Guy Peter Cordaro, CRH vice president, alleges James Vending took over vending services at Davis Memorial Hospital in Elkins, W.Va., in December 2012, even though CRH had a contract to provide the services through 2015.

According to the lawsuit, James Vending removed CRH's machines from the hospital on Dec. 3, 2012, damaging two of them, and has since provided vending services to the facility.

CRH's machines had been averaging $2,579 monthly at the hospital, according to the lawsuit. CRH is seeking $64,463 in lost revenues over a 25-month period and $50,000 in punitive damages, according to the lawsuit.

Jesse J. Risha, owner of James Vending, did not return a phone call seeking comment.
