A Belleville woman who is suing her ex-boyfriend over assets she claims she should have received as a result of their working relationship has submitted her “bill of particulars” as requested by her ex-boyfriend’s lawyer.
St. Clair County Circuit Judge Robert LeChien announced in a Feb. 21 order that plaintiff Helia Grider filed the document, which he had ordered produced on Jan. 23.
Grider sued Martin T. Hubbard and M. Hubbard Construction Inc. last September saying Hubbard refused to pay her for more than a decade’s worth of work at his construction company.
According to the lawsuit, Grider and Hubbard lived together for 12 years. She says they agreed to “mutually pool all income and equally divide all proceeds from any endeavor.” Grider says she and the defendant also acquired various real and personal properties during their relationship.
The bill of particulars states that Grider and Hubbard made a mutual promise in March 2000 to pool all resources and share in the benefits of any income received through their joint or individual efforts.
In June 2010, Grider and Hubbard renewed the mutual promise to each other to pool all resources and share in the benefits of any income received through their joint or individual efforts, the bill states.
But in July 2012, Hubbard informed Grider he would no longer share or divide any assets or possessions with the plaintiff, the bill states.
Grider claims her employment with M. Hubbard Construction and her romantic relationship with Hubbard ended in November 2011.
She is seeking a judgment exceeding $50,000.
Michael J. Swanson of Edwardsville represents Grider.
Chet A. Kelly of Williams, Caponi & Foley in Belleville represents the defendants.
