The Samoa Shipping Corporation has paid its overdue account with the LBJ hospital in American Samoa.
The hospital had filed a suit in the High Court early last month seeking a judgment of $11,243.93 plus attorney fees and other costs, against the Samoa Shipping Corportaiton
The suit sought payment for an unpaid hospital bill for a company employee who was treated for an injury at the local hospital in November of last year.
According to the law suit, when the hospital attorney Doug Juergens demanded payment from the shipping company, the demand was ignored .
But he says Samoa shipping contacted his office less than 2 weeks after the suit was filed and the bill was paid, which was what the hospital wanted.
He says the case is closed.
