Suit filed over Putnam grocery store deal

By Thomas Kallies | Nov 26, 2013

WINFIELD - NCM Inc., doing business as Little's Food King, filed suit in the Putnam County Circuit Court on Nov. 19, naming RVD, doing business as Buffalo Supermarket, and Rick Dooley as the defendants.

According to NCM, it owned a grocery store known as Little's Food King in Buffalo. NCM allegedly agreed to sell the grocery store to Dooley for $124,073.50 and reimburse the plaintiff $10,000 for the building's security deposit.

NCM claims they were to receive $74,073.50 up front with the remaining $50,000 to be paid Sep. 3. NCM claims it received a check for $74,073.50 but Dooley stopped payment on the check before it was cashed.

NCM goes on to say that Dooley closed the grocery store and put a sign in front that urged customers to call Poca Valley Bank or the West Virginia State Tax Department with any questions and signed Bobby Little's name.

NCM claims the sign created an impression to customers that Little was not paying necessary business expenses and thus defaming Little.

NCM is suing for breach of contract, conversion and defamation. NCM is seeking $134,073.50 in damages and an undisclosed amount in punitive damages. He is being represented by Chicago attorney David O. Moye.
