Waterloo chiropractic practice sued over debt

A healthcare corporation alleges it still has not received more than $60,000 owed to it pursuant to a 2008 court order.

Access Healthcare of Waterloo filed a complaint June 7 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against "Doctor Emily," a chiropractic medical business in Waterloo.

Access claims it filed a complaint against Doctor Emily on Sept. 4, 2008, in a Missouri court and received a judgment for $67,364.50 on Dec. 11, 2008.

However, Doctor Emily has paid no portion of the judgment, according to the complaint.

Since the judgment, Doctor Emily has changed hands, the suit states. Emily Woods, the company's former owner, sold the business to William T. Schmidt, the complaint says. Access claims the sales contract states the seller of the property agreed to satisfy any executory contracts, which would include her debt to Access. Still, Woods refuses to make payments, according to the complaint.

Schmidt is not authorized to practice medicine, cannot avail himself to the Illinois limited liability company and is also liable for all of Doctor Emily's debt, the suit states.

In addition to the money it says the defendants owe it, Access seeks attorney's fees and court costs.

Aaron M. Eplin of Hohlt, House, DeMoss and Epplin will be representing it.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 10-L-285.
