Equipment maker sues W.Va. billionaire's companies

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A coal mine equipment maker and seven companies owned by West Virginia billionaire Jim Justice are involved in a legal dispute over payments.

Beckley-based Phillips Machine Services sued the Justice-owned companies last month in Raleigh County Circuit Court. Phillips and a Kentucky-based subsidiary, The Combs Group, allege that the companies owe them more than $1 million.

Justice filed a counter-suit on Friday seeking $7.5 million from the plaintiffs.

Justice tells the Charleston Gazette ( ) that the counter-suit involves services that his companies believe the plaintiffs should have done but didn't.

An attorney representing Phillips, Marc Weintraub, says his client has no comment.
