WHEELING – An individual and two Ohio County companies are seeking damages from Intuit over claims that Intuit failed to process direct deposit transactions in a timely manner.
DeFeliceCare Inc., DeFeliceGroup Inc. and Leslie Paul DeFelice filed a civil suit Jan. 26 in Ohio Circuit Court against Intuit Inc., doing business as Quickbooks, citing negligent misconduct and a breach of contract.
The plaintiffs claim that they used Quickbooks to conduct their payroll beginning April 2013 to February 2014. They assert that one of the defendant’s responsibilities was making sure the direct deposit transactions of their employees were monitored and deposited correctly and on time. The plaintiffs allegedly made sure that they had funds for those types of transactions. However, the plaintiffs claim that Intuit failed to process plaintiff’s payroll information on time, causing their employees to miss their wages. They allege that Intuit reassured them that the direct deposits will be processed in a timely manner but defendant’s failure to do so has caused the plaintiffs to be sued by their employees.
The plaintiffs are suing for damages, including the cost of the suit of the civil action against the plaintiffs by their employees, attorneys' fees and costs. They are seeking a jury trial and are represented by Bradley K. Shafer from Swartz Campbell LLC in Wheeling.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jason A. Cuomo.
