GRETNA – A local man is suing an antique and vintage furniture dealer and its owners over alleged breach of contract after he purchased several pieces of European furniture for them to sell, but did not receive any of the profits from the sales.
F.M. Stoller filed suit against Lawrence Mann, Dennis Mann and Renaissance Interiors in the 24th Judicial District Court on Dec. 10.
Stoller alleges that he made three trips to Europe between 2004 and 2005 and purchased over 300 antique pieces of furniture and other items that were to be sold by the defendants for which he would receive one-third of the profits and that they would pay for his travel and purchasing costs. The plaintiff contends that many of the goods he provided to the defendants are unaccounted for and he has not received any payment for the costs or profits for supplying them. Stoller asserts that the Manns and Renaissance Interiors have sold many of the items he had procured were sold on a cash basis with no accounting for their sale and that the profits were not provided to him.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
An unspecified amount in damages is by the plaintiff.
Stoller is representing himself pro se.
The case has been assigned to Division M Judge Henry G. Sullivan Jr.
Case no. 745-008.
