BATON ROUGE — A Baton Rouge business is suing a former employer, alleging the defendant filed a false complaint.
Pitts Management Associates Inc. filed a lawsuit April 26 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana against Maureen Fahey, alleging wrongful accusation.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 5, 2014, Pitts entered into a written letter of agreement with the defendant, detailing the conditions of Fahey's employment. On Dec. 8, 2015, the suit says, Pitts terminated the defendant’s employment for cause, and paid all compensation owed.
As a result, the suit alleges, the plaintiff owes Fahey no further amounts. However, Pitts says Maureen Fahey is contending the plaintiff has breached the terms of the letter agreement.
Pitts Management seeks a trial by jury, declaration the defendant’s employment was terminated for a cause, that it did not breach any contract, that it does not owe the defendant any further amounts and for such other relief the court deems proper. It is represented by attorneys W. Scott Keaty, Jennifer A. Hataway and Joshua G. McDiarmid of Kantrow Spaht Weaver & Blitzer in Baton Rouge.
