Fraser Lawsuit 

Madawaska-based Fraser claims in a federal suit that Valassis Communications Inc. of Livonia, Mich., hasn’t paid for 1.8 million pounds of paper shipped to Valassis’ firm’s Durham, N.C., facility.

Fraser alleges that Valassis ignored its demands for payment in August and September.

The lawsuit says Valassis is a direct mail and marketing firm and the paper it ordered was to be used in retail inserts.
