A legal-themed charter school in Chicago is facing a lawsuit that accuses it of failing to pay its more than $50,000 tab for a school lunch program.
OrganicLife, a provider of healthy school lunches, filed a breach of contract lawsuit Aug. 27 in Cook County Circuit Court against Legal Prep Charter Academies.
According to the complaint, OrganicLife entered into a contract with Legal Prep Charter Academies on July 10, 2013 for it to provide meals to the defendant's school, which opened about two years ago on West Washington Boulevard.
OrganicLife claims it provided and delivered the agreed-upon meals, but the defendant has failed to pay the more than $50,800 it owes.
OrganicLife is seeking the amount owed, plus interest and attorney fees, and is represented by attorneys Cornelius P. Brown and Amy E. Dalco of Cohon, Raizes & Regal in Chicago.
The case number is Cook County Circuit Court case 2014L008964.
