CHICAGO — A company is suing Pace-O-Matic Inc., Pier Holdings LLC, Cory Aronovitz, Casino Law Group, Dwayne Waxer and Daniel Warren for alleged breach of fiduciary duty, intentional interference and fraud.
Windy City Promotions LLC filed a complaint on April 11 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants breached their duties of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered irreparable harm and was stripped of its capital because the defendants allegedly enticed it to enter into an exclusive agreement to distribute their software and promotional sweepstakes system.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly interfering with its contractual relationship, hiding their commercial activities, diverting funds in an effort to force the plaintiff to relent and sign over its exclusive distribution rights and for allegedly inducing it to enter into a contract.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for damages in an amount greater than $75,000, plus costs, attorney fees, declaratory and injunctive relief, punitive damages and any further relief the court deems just. The plaintiff is represented by William M. Gantz and Michael Sciaccotta of Dentons US LLP in Chicago.
