From the Fix Pacifica blog comes news of a civil suit filed in San Mateo Court by Engineered Soil Resources against Millard Tong for payment due for work done since Fall 2008. (Fix Pacifica: The Crumbly Cliffs lawsuits begin).
According to the Complaint, Tong has refused to pay all amounts due to work done on both 310 Esplanade Ave, and 320 Esplanade for work dating back to 2008. This is only one side of the story, and we’ll have to wait to learn why Tong chose to delay or deny payment.
|310 Esplanade Avenue||$971,489.44|
|320 Esplanade Avenue||$845,241.44|
