FRESNO — A Fresno County father and son are suing a towing company, alleging it owes more than $100,000 for breach of contract and wrongful eviction.
Guri Lopez and Jose Francisco Del Toro filed a complaint Oct. 19 in Fresno County Superior Court against Bill Shubin and Stealth Towing Inc. and Does 1-50, alleging they failed their duties to comply with the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, since Oct. 11, Lopez and Del Toro have suffered and continue to suffer injury, including anxiety, embarrassment, humiliation, depression, anguish, and stress as a result of the malicious and despicable conduct of the defendants. The suit says the defendants conspired to deprive them of their leasehold interest in the premises at 2301 W. Belmont, Fresno, owned by Shubin, to prevent the plaintiffs having access to the property, by placing the liens on the vehicles stored by Lopez and Del Toro and taking possession of the premises.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants failed to allow them access to and use of the premises, failed to prevent an illegal wrongful eviction of the plaintiffs, and failed to return the vehicles to plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants for general damages of not less than $100,000, special damages of not less than $50,000, punitive damages of $450,000 costs of suit and all further relief the court deems just. They are represented by attorneys H. Ty Kharazi and Boden Davidson of Yarra Law Group in Fresno.
