Business Law - Total Quality Managament v. American Factors

As the building services manager for Fulton County, Georgia, Steve Fullard oversaw custodial services. Fullard determined which services to contract for, received the bids, and recommended the selection of a vendor. After the selection of Total Quality Maintenance of Georgia (TQM) on a particular contract, Fullard supervised TQM'S performance and received and processed its invoices. Later, TQM assigned its unpaid invoices to American Factors of Nashville, Inc., which forwarded copies to Fullard with a statement rubber-stamped on each invoice. The statment began with the word "NOTICE" and the name, address,and phone number of American Factors. It also said, "Remittance to other than American Facotrs of Nashville, Inc., does not consitute payment of this Invoice." Included with each invoice was a certifcation by TQM's president that the invoice had been assigned to American Factors. Nevertheless, the Factors filed a suit in a Georgia State court against the county, claiming that it still owed American Factors. Did the county have sufficient notice of TQM's assignment? Can the county be required to pay the same invoice twice" Why or why not?
