A local consultant is suing a Pawnee company, claiming it failed to pay him for work it hired him to do in applying for a medical marijuana cultivation license.
Sam Dorf filed suit against JCLM LLC and Illinois residents – Malcolm Lambe, Linda Usher, Joe Bloome, Clayton Bloome and Christy Wilcox Bloome—Thursday in the Cook County Circuit Court, alleging a breach of contract.
In his suit, Dorf claims he and JCLM entered into an oral agreement in late August in which the defendants would pay him $30,000 for his consulting services regarding an application for a license to grow medical marijuana.
Dorf alleges Lambe told him on numerous occasions that he was going to sign an agreement and make the first payment, statements Dorf asserts he relied on to begin his consulting work for the defendants.
While he claims JCLM benefited from his work, the suit states the defendants breached their agreement on Sept. 1, when they failed to pay him for his consulting services.
He is seeking $30,000 in compensatory damages, as well as interest on that amount from Sept. 1 until the date of judgment, attorney’s fees and costs.
Dorf is represented by Perry Perelman of Perelman Dorf LLC in Chicago. The suit did not identify Dorf as an attorney, but there is a Sam Dorf that works at Perelman Dorf.
