LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles man is suing a food and beverage vendor, alleging breach of contract.
Anthony T. Perfetti filed a complaint Sept. 5 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Levy Illinois Limited Partnership of Chicago, and Compass Group USA Inc. of Charlotte, North Carolina, alleging the defendants wrongfully allege the plaintiff has breached their employment agreement for accepting employment with Delaware North.
According to the complaint, Perfetti suffered damages as the result of being threatened with a lawsuit for alleged breach of an employment agreement when he worked for the defendants as director of operations at Dodger Stadium and then as regional director of operations. The plaintiff alleges the defendants are wrongfully prohibiting Perfetti from working for Delaware North as manager for food and beverage at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, which violates California law.
The suit says Perfetti believed the defendants were preparing to fire him, which is why he pursued a new position with Delaware North.
Perfetti seeks trial by jury, lost wages in the form of severance pay, declare the respective rights and duties of plaintiff and defendants as to the enforcement of the non-competition provision of the employment agreement, legal fees, prohibit the defendants from enforcing sections 7 through 14, interest and all other relief the court deems just. He is represented by attorneys Howard Z. Rosen, Jason Marsili and Amanda Pitrof of Posner & Rosen LLP in Los Angeles.
