SAN FRANCISCO – A public accountant is suing another accountant over allegations of misuse of funds.
Dennis Murray filed a complaint on April 4 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against Patrick Carlin and Does 1-10 alleging breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff and defendant are 50 percent shareholders of Carlin & Murray. The suit states that in February, Carlin announced that they were no longer business partners and deprived the plaintiff of access to the QuickBook system. The plaintiff alleges Carlin has altered company records to conceal misuse of company funds.
The plaintiff holds Carlin and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly breached his contractual agreement by taking profits for himself.
The plaintiff seeks damages, punitive damages, order to return funds to Carlin & Murray, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Frank A. Cialone of Shartsis Friese LLP in San Francisco.
