CHARLESTON — A West Virginia medical group is suing a physician, alleging failure to perform her contractual obligations.
West Virginia University Medical Corp., Charleston Division, doing business as West Virginia University Physicians of Charleston, filed a lawsuit Nov. 28 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Dr. Ritu Walia, alleging breach of a promissory note.
According to the complaint, on May 9, 2013, the plaintiff provided a loan to Walia of $30,000. The outstanding principle and interest amounting to $15,061.88 remains due and owing, the suit says.
The plaintiff alleges Walia abruptly terminated her employment with the plaintiff Oct. 17, 2014, without paying the account balance.
