GRETNA – A man who pulled out of a business partnership is suing the business for allegedly not paying him for his share of its profits and assets.
Nickie G. Cammarata filed suit against U.S. Forensic LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on July 3.
Cammarata claims that on Oct. 1, 2006 he formed U.S. Forensic LLC with three other manager/owners. The plaintiff alleges that all members of the LLC would share equally in its losses and profits and that in order to change the company’s charter a 100% vote would have to be taken. On Aug. 8, 2012 Cammarata asserts that he withdrew from the agreement and expected to be paid out for his stake in the company. However, the plaintiff claims that he has not received any profits from the company since he left despite asking the existing members for the LLC to provide a thorough accounting of the company.
The defendant is accused of reducing the plaintiff’s profit sharing interest.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for the amount due plus 12 percent annual interest, court costs, expenses and attorney fees.
Cammarata is represented by Larry G. Canada of New Orleans-based Galloway, Johnson, Tompkins, Burr & Smith APLC.
The case has been assigned to Division N Judge Stephen D. Enright Jr.
Case no. 728-654.
