NEW CUMBERLAND – A Wisconsin insurance firm is suing a Weirton deli owner to collect damages that the plaintiff was awarded by an out-of-state court.
Platte River Insurance Co. filed a lawsuit May 20 in Hancock Circuit Court against Denise Burdette, doing business as Grammy’s Deli & More.
According to the complaint, Burdette allegedly mishandled funds collected from the sale of Pennsylvania lottery tickets at her establishment, requiring Platte River to pay out on the commonwealth’s losses. The Washington County, Pennsylvania, Court of Common Pleas awarded Platte River $14,478 in damages, plus 6 percent annual interest accruing from March 14, the suit says.
Platte River seeks recovery of the judgment amount plus interest, totaling $14,606.84. It is represented by attorney John R. Heating of Amato Keating and Lessa P.C. in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Judge Jason A. Cuomo is assigned to the case.
