March 30, 2012
– A company that filed a lawsuit against the former Century Lumber and Land company of Century, Florida, has been awarded a US$11,770 default judgment, according to a report by NorthEascambia.com.
C&C Land Clearing of Jay filed the suit after carrying out land clearing work around the former Alger-Sullivan Lumber Company property in Century, and was awarded the judgment by Judge Pat Kinsey.
Century Lumber pledged to restart the former Alger-Sullivan Lumber complex and hire 500 workers, holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Oct. 2010. The company never opened, but Workforce Escarosa said the US$8.5 million project attracted 3,000 applications.
Property records show that Century Lumber and Land did not own the property at the time of the ribbon-cutting.
Manager James Craft and an associate were later arrested on securities fraud charges. Craft is now awaiting trial on those charges, which stem from an Alabama Securities Commission investigation.
