I recently obtained a judgment against Colorado Steel Buildings, LTD and its owner, Christian Mendrop. My client paid Colorado Steel Building, LTD in advance for construction of a steel building in Larimer County, Colorado. Colorado Steel Building, LTD did not advance any work towards completing the project. Instead, its owner, Chris Mendrop kept asking for more and more payments for various needs associated with the building project. After paying significant sums and seeing no progress on the construction of the steel building, my client filed suit, alleging breach of contract, fraud, civil theft and other claims. Colorado Steel Building, LTD and Chris Mendrop tried to run and hide, but were unsuccessful. My client obtained a judgment against both of them.
