CHICAGO — A woman is suing her business partner, Anthony Patton, for alleged fraudulent misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty.
Linette Young filed a complaint on May 7 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant took possession of, misappropriated and converted their business' property without consent or compensation.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she and Patton agreed to open a grocery store together called A&N Groceries. The plaintiff alleges that over the course of their business partnership, the defendant began to unexpectedly close the store and lock her out of it, which allegedly has prevented her from accessing financial records. She also claims that he is trying to unilaterally end their business agreement.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks general, compensatory, statutory and punitive damages; attorney's fees; costs; and all other relief to which she may be entitled. She is represented by S.L. Owens of Owens & Freeman LLC in Chicago.
