August 31, 2005|by PEPPER BALLARD

FUNKSTOWN - The Funkstown Moose Lodge is being sued for more than $38,000 by a bingo and gaming supplies distributor which alleges it wasn't paid as promised for supplies it sold the lodge in April 2002, according to a lawsuit filed in Washington County Circuit Court.

According to the lawsuit, filed Aug. 17, Donnie Howard, a representative of Funkstown Moose Lodge, promised on April 19, 2002, to pay $33,600 to Frank D. Moran Sr., of Frank Moran & Sons Inc., over a 12-month period for bingo and gaming supplies the club received.

Under a signed agreement between the groups, the first payment was to be made Sept. 1, 2002, the suit states. But only seven payments, totaling $12,000, were received, Moran alleges in the suit. The remaining $21,600 was not received, but, under the agreement, interest and attorneys' fees must also be paid if the money was not received within a certain time period, the suit alleges.

Between August 2002 and January 2005, Moran sold gaming and bingo supplies to the Moose lodge, totaling $42,546.36, according to the suit.

All the supplies were delivered and accepted without complaint or returns, the suit alleges.

Moran is seeking $31,504.69 for products sold, delivered and accepted plus finance charges, according to the suit.

Mike Stumbaugh, Funkstown Moose Lodge's administrator, said Tuesday he was aware of the lawsuit and could not comment on its specifics.

Stumbaugh said he has been administrator at the lodge at 132 Old National Pike since Jan. 21.
