HUNTINGTON – An Ona woman is suing her former business partner after she claims he breached his contract with her.
Jacqueline D. Brown and Kelly S. Nelson jointly operated a partnership performing lawn care in West Virginia and Brown purchased certain equipment for use in the business, according to a complaint filed Nov. 2 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Brown claims when the parties dissolved the partnership of the lawn care business, Nelson assumed all assets and liabilities of the partnership.
On March 15, 2010, Brown and Nelson entered a contract, which reflects their rights and responsibilities regarding their agreement, according to the suit.
Brown claims Nelson breached his obligations under the contract, which stated that Nelson agreed to pay all sums, including accrued interest and any costs, sales tax and property tax that occurred under the lease for the equipment.
As a result of Nelson’s breach of contract, Brown has suffered and will continue to suffer damages, according to the suit.
Brown is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Paula L. Harbour.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge David M. Pancake.
