BATON ROUGE, The., July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Coastal Bridge LLC has filed a petition in the 19th Judicial Court of Red Stickrequesting reinstatement of his contractor’s license after the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors revoked the company’s license on July 15, 2021.
In its application, Coastal Bridge said it had made several attempts to comply with the evidence requested by the council, including financial statements from a CPA attesting to the company’s ability to continue to perform the contracted work.
“That should have ended the investigation,” Coastal Bridge said in its petition. ‘There is no evidence that Coastal Bridge did a faulty job or failed to complete a job for performance reasons.’
Coastal Bridge said that Kelly Sills was charged in the court of public opinion and this Louisiana the board of directors acted unlawfully as judge and jury in revoking the company’s license.
“In America, we accept the idea of being presumed innocent until proven guilty, but unfortunately that has not been the reality in the ongoing allegations against Mr. Sills,” the company said. “We know what the facts are and look forward to our day in court where truth and transparency will prevail over bias and prejudice.”
The board’s actions show it ‘exceeded its authority, abused its discretion and deprived Coastal Bridge of due process’ by revoking the company’s licenses and demanding financial evidence not required for renewal or l applying for a contractor’s license, Coastal Bridge said.
Coastal Bridge was working on seven projects totaling $9 million in value when its license was revoked, creating uncertainty for the company’s 23 employees.
The company is seeking reinstatement of its license so it can continue “the work it has done for 70 years,” according to the petition.
