New Jersey aid group sues Winchester business

By Sally Voth

A New Jersey charity is suing a Winchester building manufacturer in U.S. District Court, claiming it misrepresented its ability to provide design and engineering work.

NOVA Hope for Haiti Inc. filed the suit against Shelter2Home Inc. originally in federal court in New Jersey, but the case was transferred to Harrisonburg on Tuesday, according to online court records.

The New Jersey aid group sends medical volunteers to Haiti, according to the suit. It states the group bought property in Haiti prior to August 2010 with the plan to build a basic medical facility with places for the volunteers to live.

The suit accuses Shelter2Home of misrepresenting its ability to provide design drawings, engineering work and the manufacture of the buildings themselves at its Winchester location.

The parties entered into an agreement for four buildings in February 2011, according to the suit. NOVA paid $10,000 for the floor plans, it states.

The New Jersey group paid more than $61,000 for construction materials, according to the complaint, and neither it nor the design drawings have been turned over.

Shelter2Home hasn't made any filings since the transfer of the case.
