According to the complaint, the plaintiff is seeking damages for an incident that began on April 26, 2016, when the defendant signed an exclusive distributor agreement in which McHenry's Ascension was named the principal and agreed to pay $100,000 to the plaintiff for rights to distribute a medical product.
