PITTSBURGH – A Delaware corporation is seeking declaratory judgment in a dispute with Pennsylvania-residing stock holders.
Ferri Enterprises Inc. filed a complaint on Nov. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against John E. Ferri, individually and in his capacity as trustee of the Carole E. Ferri Family Trust; The Carole E. Ferri Family Trust; Megan E. Ferri; Emily M. Ferri; Nathan J. Ferri; Anna K. Ferri; and Tom Ferri seeking declaratory judgment.
