POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A contractor is suing the parent company of Hoku Materials over work done at Hoku’s failed polysilicon plant in eastern Idaho. Officials with JH Kelly Inc., a Washington state construction company, have said the company is still owed about $25 million for work on the plant in Pocatello.

The Idaho State Journal  reports the company filed a lawsuit in Pocatello’s U.S. District Court on Tuesday, contending Tianwei New Energy Holdings committed fraud and racketeering in connection with the plant.

JH Kelly is seeking unspecified damages including money owed for work completed and attorney’s fees. Tianwei New Energy Holdings has not yet filed a response to the lawsuit. Hoku is currently in bankruptcy proceedings in eastern Idaho.
