A kitchen and bath company claims customers under contract for an installation job were convinced to void their contract by another supplier and buy directly from him.
Herzog Kitchen & Bath, Inc. filed a lawsuit on Jan. 14 in Madison County Circuit Court against Pat Corsi.
Herzog Kitchen & Bath says they entered into a valid contract with Dave and Julie Arvola on April 22, 2008, for the installation of kitchen and bath products. While the couple was viewing products at the Corsi Group, the suit claims Pat Corsi induced the Aryolas to purchase the products directly from him and breach their contract with Herzog Kitchen & Bath.
The plaintiffs say Corsi was aware that the Aryolas had a valid contract with their company and that the company had asked Corsi if the couple could look at some of the products they had bought from Herzog Kitchen & Bath.
Herzog Kitchen & Bath says Corsi's actions were unjustified and resulted in lost profits to the company.
In its complaint, Herzog Kitchen & Baths seeks damages of $50,000 plus punitive damages on each of two counts.
Peter J. Maag of Maag Law Firm is representing the company.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-39.
