David Lewis, farming business sued again over more unpaid debt

David Lewis

For the second time in a little over a week, Rep. David Lewis (R-Harnett) and his business have been hit with a lawsuit over unpaid debt.

John Deere Financial and Deere & Company filed the suit Thursday in Harnett County. It states Lewis took out several loans dating back to 2014 for farm equipment but he has not yet paid them off. The loans are past due and in default.

The lawsuit states the plaintiffs sent Lewis a demand letter Oct. 24 for a payment in full of what is owed, but he failed to pay. Lewis and his business owes a little over $1 million, plus interest, according to the lawsuit.

The plaintiffs are also asking for the defendants to pay attorneys fees for bringing the litigation, and for them to turn over the “collateral” farm equipment that was purchased with the loans.

An agricultural supply company sued Lewis last week, his farming company and its partners for $1.5 million stating that they also tried to collect on a debt without success.

Lewis told WRAL at the time that he was surprised about the lawsuit. He did not return to an email Friday from NC Policy Watch asking about the new lawsuit. Read the full document below.
