BELLEVILLE — A director of operations for Spec-Rite Designs company is suing the owners of a furniture company for allegedly refusing to compensate her for her work on a project.
Jennifer Clark filed a complaint on June 15 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Wilson Kitches, Inc., Matthew Willson, Blake Wilson, Mark Wilson and Harold Wilson, alleging they breached their fiduciary duties of loyalty and care and violated their obligation of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between January 2016 and March 2016, she worked with the defendants on a Pod Hotel Project. The parties allegedly entered into a contract, agreeing to pay Clark 5 percent compensation for her partnership.
However, Clark alleges she failed to receive any payment even after continued communication with the defendants.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed and refused to make payments to the plaintiff even after she provided services, knowledge, and experience. She also alleges they concealed material facts from her during the creation of the project.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to award for actual damages in an amount greater than $50,000, pre-judgment interest, costs of litigation, and other further relief as the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by Hrant "Hud" Norsigian, Jr. of Norsigian Law Office, LLC in O'Fallon.
