U.S. Merchants Financial Group (“U.S. Merchants”) (defendant) ordered large amounts of plastics from Rocheux International of New Jersey (“Rocheux”) (plaintiff). These orders were placed in 2005 and 2006. U.S. Merchants, however, did not pay for most of the 2006 deliveries. U.S. Merchants also failed to pay Rocheux for over a million and a half dollars’ worth of plastics delivered to a warehouse in 2005 and 2006. The president of Rocheux emailed the president of U.S. Merchants requesting the delinquent payments for the 2006 deliveries and warehouse goods. In an August 2nd email, Rocheux presented a proposal to resolve U.S. Merchants’ problems with past-due invoices. Then, in a September 21st letter, Rocheux notified U.S. Merchants that a failure to pay would result in Rocheux selling the warehouse goods and seeking any deficiency pursuant to Uniform Commercial Code § 2-706. In an October 4th letter, U.S. Merchants requested a letter of credit. Rocheux did indeed sell the warehouse goods with a resulting deficiency of $387,699.70. Rocheux brought suit against U.S. Merchants to recover the amounts owed. U.S. Merchants alleged that the 2006 deliveries were defective and substantially failed to conform with the contract descriptions.
