PITTSBURGH – Through a newly-filed lawsuit, a Pittsburgh shopping center owner is seeking to recover more than $38,000 in outstanding payments from a Chinese buffet restaurant, which served as one of its former tenants.

Ira J. Gumberg (Trustee) and J.J. Gumberg Co. of Pittsburgh filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Jan. 17 versus TJ’s Buffet Sushi & Grill, Inc., also of Pittsburgh.

On June 30, 2016, the defendant leased a 10,000 square foot-space in the North Hills Village Mall in Pittsburgh, for the operation of a Chinese buffet restaurant on the leased premises for a term of 10 years. However, the suit says, the agreement was breached by the defendant failing to pay rent and additional rent when owing. As of this month, those sums in question are the following:

Unpaid Rent/Additional Rent Through January 2018   $31,500

Accumulated Late Charges                                            $4,200

Landlord’s Reasonable Attorney’s Fees                        $2,500

Total                                                                               $38,200

For breach of contract, the plaintiffs are seeking damages in excess of $35,000, plus rent, additional rent, late charges accruing from and after January 2018, additional attorney’s fees and costs of suit.

The plaintiffs are represented by Kenneth J. Yarsky II of Sherrard German & Kelly, in Pittsburgh.
