CHICAGO — An Illinois woman is suing Jason Paul Mitchell, who does business as Power Productions, and Mitchell Handyman Chicago Inc., citing alleged age discrimination, battery, breach of contract, fraud and unjust enrichment.

Lucy Pesa filed a complaint July 23 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging that she suffered financial injury and emotional distress, mental anguish and humiliation in July 2016 because the defendant allegedly convinced her to loan him money to purchase items for his sound and lighting company and tricked her into having an intimate relationship with him.

In addition, Pesa claims Mitchell concealed charges of theft and forgery and past incarcerations from her. 

Pesa said Mitchell also allegedly hid his engagement to another woman and refused to pay back the money he borrowed. In all, the plaintiff asserts she is owed $14,799.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and punitive damages, attorney's fees, costs and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Antonio DeBlasio and David Grower of DeBlasio & Gower LLC in Oak Brook.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 18-L-7793
