SAN FRANCISCO – A New York company alleges that a San Francisco business did not properly store cheese, costing it damages.
DS-Concept Trade Invest LLC filed a complaint on May 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Morgan-Todt Inc., doing business as United Cold Storage, alleging negligence, breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between 2015, it suffered damages to its business due to cheese products being frozen and damaged during storage by the defendant. The suit states the cheese had an estimated value of $1,775,611.81. The plaintiff holds Morgan-Todt Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide proper storage to the cheese products and failed to advise plaintiff of the actual storage conditions. The suit states that defendant also insisted on being paid for storage costs prior to making the cheese for sale to a third party or for disposition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages, injunctive relief, exemplary damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. It is represented by Andrew D. Castricone of Gordon & Rees LLP in San Francisco.
