PRINCETON – A Mercer County company is suing over claims it was wrongly evicted when its lessors sold the property upon which it operated a store.
Nadhal Alraadi and Sallam LLC filed a lawsuit Aug. 11 in Mercer Circuit Court against Mid-Town Center LP, Samuel R. Sink and Mustafa Mosleh, citing wrongful eviction.
According to the complaint, Alraadi leased premises from Joy Food Stores Inc., San Ann Oil Company and Food Stores of West Virginia Inc. on South Walker Street in Princeton on July 2, 2012. The complaint states the lessors sold the property to the defendants and gave the plaintiff its 180-day notice of the termination of the lease April 2, the suit states.
Alraadi says on April 10, he was informed by the defendants he would have to vacate the premises immediately, which breached the lease and cost him damages in the form of amounts he would have received in the 180-day period. The complaint also states Alraadi's $10,000 deposit has not been returned. The defendants are accused of tortious interference, wrongful eviction and defamation.
The plaintiffs are seeking the amounts they would have received during the 180-day period, the return of the security deposit, damages and costs.
They are being represented in the case by attorney Kenneth E. Chittum in Bluefield.
