SACRAMENTO – A Louisiana franchise has filed suit against a Vacaville business alleging
it failed to deliver its obligations based on its franchise agreement with plaintiff.
Joli Grace LLC filed a complaint on May 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Country Visions Inc., alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2009, Joli Grace LLC entered into an agreement to become an Apricot Lane franchise with the defendant. The plaintiff holds Country Visions Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to perform its contractual obligations to the plaintiff by providing support and exclusive products.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of no less than $3,000,000, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Elizabeth B. Stallard of Downey Brand LLP in Sacramento and W. Michael Garner of Garner & Ginsburg PA in Minneapolis.
