Banner Sues Jay’s Pizza
June 6, 2007 - A Carthage business owner has been ordered to pay The Banner nearly $1,000 for more than two months of advertising he placed in the newspaper but never paid for.
The Banner filed a small claims suit in late April against Jay Thomas, owner of Jay's Pizza & Grinders, 5 Mill St., Carthage, over $912 owed for advertising that ran in the paper between the first week of December and mid-February. When Thomas failed to appear for a hearing in the Henry Superior Court II May 24, Judge Bob Witham entered a default judgment against him for $912, plus the $85 small claims filing fee The Banner had to pay.
"We make a sincere effort to exercise patience and understanding with delinquent customers, and the decision to take someone to court in order to collect on an outstanding bill is not one we make lightly" said Eric Cox, The Banner's owner and publisher. "However, in this case, turning to the courts is really the only viable option we have for collecting what's owed.
“We made numerous attempts to collect this debt and keep things friendly,” Cox continued. “But, we’re a small business, too. Like a restaurant, our business relies on customers paying their bills.”
