NEW ORLEANS – A member of a medical limited liability company alleges a Nashville corporation did not honor a contract.
Jeffrey Singer, MD filed a complaint on Nov. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against AmSurg Holdings Inc. alleging breach of order.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he was deprived of being able to perform a rudimentary cost-of-goods-sold analysis to determine if the ambulatory eye center owned by the defendant was being shortchanged. The plaintiff holds AmSurg Holdings Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to provide access to business records, refused to reimburse the center for all costs incurred in acquiring a LenSx laser surgical apparatus and instead continued to charge monthly fees associated with its presence at the center instead of removing it.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor, ordering defendant to comply with the terms of the arbitration order and final award, permanent injunction barring defendant's continued enforcement of the noncompete provision, award for damages, attorney’s fees and costs and all other equitable relief. He is represented by Perry R. Staub Jr., Barry H. Grodsky and Donald J. Miester Jr. of Taggart Morton LLC in New Orleans.
