PITTSBURGH — Gateway Global Delivery Inc. faces a lawsuit over a request for financial records by a shareholder.
Robert J. Lewis filed a complaint in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County against Gateway Global Delivery Inc. and Frank J. Jakovac, alleging that the defendants deprived plaintiff of the benefit of his investment in the corporation by failing to provide requested records.
Robert J. Lewis' personal CFO held a meeting in April with representatives of the defendant allegedly to gather information on plaintiff's investment for financial performance, valuation, tax planning tax reporting purposes.
Although the defendant did provide certain information that he requested, Lewis alleges he failed to receive his papers for tax returns and K-1s after 2013 or financial statements despite numerous demands.
The plaintiff holds Gateway Global Delivery, Inc. and Frank J. Jakovac responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide the requested information, and further asserted that the repeated requests and demands for information were inadequate, despite that he is lawfully entitled as a minority investor and shareholder in the corporation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment to tender copies of all documents, and to award costs and fees of action. He is represented by Brian J. Kahle and Mark C. Hamilton of Tucker Arensberg, PC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
