PITTSBURGH — A former employee is suing Suebert and Associates Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation, citing alleged breach of contract.
James B. Conniff filed a complaint on Dec. 17 in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County against Suebert and Associates Inc., alleging the Pennsylvania corporation withheld funds from plaintiff.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he suffered substantial monetary damages as a result of defendant's wrongful conduct in withholding funds from plaintiff by refusing to return his salary back to $75,000; prevented him from exercising his stock options; and induced plaintiff from working for any rival agency, including Henderson Brothers.
The plaintiff holds Suebert and Associates Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay plaintiff for the value of the stock options, and caused plaintiff to lose a guaranteed two-year salary and health insurance.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages in an amount in excess of $50,000, punitive damages, attorney's fees, costs, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Michael Collis of Wilkes & McHugh PA in Philadelphia.
