PHILADELPHIA — A man's limited guardian is suing H&H Manufacturing Co. Inc. and precision machine shop owner Thomas Tomei, citing alleged breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and unpaid wages.
Mark Tomei filed a complaint Aug. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleging that the defendants failed to provide his ward, Vincent Tomei, with proper wages and benefits.
According to the complaint, Vincent Tomei, who was declared mentally unable ot manage his own affairs in September 2016, was deprived by the defendants of the full wages, bonuses, fringe benefits, retirement payments and capital investment from salary that he allowed to remain in the defendants' company for a period of time.
Mark Tomei said the defendants should be held responsible because they allegedly accepted Vincent Tomei's executive services and capital investments without paying him in return and forced him to hire an attorney to prosecute the lawsuit.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a judgment for an amount in excess of $75,000, plus interest, costs, attorney's fees and other relief the court deems just. He is represented by Paul Bucco and David Makara of Davis Bucco in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania.
