FRESNO — A California woman is suing her former business partner, alleging refusal to apply payments of more than $150,000.
Meirav Leibovici filed a complaint Nov. 6 in Fresno County Superior Court against Kyle Blackmon and Does 1-10, alleging Blackmon breached their entered oral agreements by not paying the full amount of the loans.
According to the complaint, between 2015 and May 2017, Leibovici was involved in a two-year relationship with Blackmon and says she agreed to provide numerous loans and advances to the defendants with a mutual understanding that Blackmon would repay the full amounts loaned and advanced.
At the termination of their relationship, Leibovici says she has not received any payments for the amount of $61,331.46. The plaintiff alleges Blackmon failed to remit any portion of the payment for the loans made and intentionally and substantially interfered with the individual's right to use the money for the parties' mutual benefit by taking control of the funds and using those funds for his personal benefit.
Leibovici seeks trial by jury, damages for the principal sum of $105,868.73, damages of at least $44,537.27 according to proof at trial, pre-and post-judgment interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other relief the court deems appropriate. She is represented by attorneys Gary A. Hunt and Kelly B. Lowe of McCormick, Barstow, Sheppard, Wayte & Carruth LLP in Fresno.
