NEW ORLEANS – A man is seeking damages, claiming that an employer changed contract details without his consent and failed to pay him for delivered services.
Nikolaos E. Pantazis filed a suit against Matthew Alleman and Republic New Orleans LLC in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on June 6.
According to the claim, the plaintiff is an entertainment promoter and was hired by the defendants to complete a number of duties, which he did beginning on March 12, 2012, and continuing through 2015. The suit states that in April 2015, Alleman told the plaintiff that there were plans to sell the venue where the plaintiff had completed the work that he was hired to do. The venue was sold later in 2015, and the plaintiff alleges he was informed that there was not any more work for him to complete, without any changes being made to the original agreement which stated otherwise. At the time of the plaintiff's termination from his duties, he was still owed more than $19,000, however, the suit states that the defendants have still failed to pay him for these outstanding charges.
The defendants are accused of refusal to pay outstanding earnings.
The plaintiff is seeking an unspecified amount in damages. He is represented by Steven E. Psarellis of New Orleans. The case has been assigned to Division A Judge Tiffany G. Chase.
