EDWARDSVILLE — An Edwardsville student living facility is suing a buyer, alleging fraud and unfair competition.
Enclave West LLC filed a lawsuit Sept. 21 in Madison County Circuit Court against SL Enclave West Apartments Holdings LLC, alleging violation of the Illinois Uniform and Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
According to the complaint, as a result of SL Enclave West Apartments' failure to rebrand on time, Enclave West has been damaged in the form of diminished profits and misappropriation and misuse of its name, reputation and good will. The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to meet the rebranding deadline and created marketplace confusion and misunderstanding.
Enclave West seeks trial by jury, judgment against defendant for liquidated damages not less than $2.84 million plus punitive damages of $4.56 million, attorney fees, court costs and all other relief the court deems just and proper. It is represented by attorney John W. MaCracken of Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli PC in Edwardsville.
