SAN FRANCISCO – A Contra Costa County resident alleges her former son-in-law failed to repay her for an investment she made.
Adrienne Michel filed a complaint on Dec. 20 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against Michael Richard Schneider and Does 1-30 alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the defendant was previously married to the plaintiff's daughter. The suit states in 2009, the defendant approached her about investing $180,000 in a mobile home rental business in Oklahoma. The plaintiff alleges she signed six contracts and from 2009 to 2012, she received sporadic dividend payments from the defendant. She alleges in 2013, the defendant told her "some unidentified person" took her investment and she would no longer receive payments.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant owes $72,865.43 plus interest.
The plaintiff holds Schneider and Does 1-30 responsible because the defendant failed to repay the principal and interest as agreed upon.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants for compensatory damages of no less than $72,865.43, plus interest, general and punitive damages, costs of suit, and further relief as the court deems just. She is represented by David M. Sternberg, Robert A. Miller and Jacob M. Barlev of David M. Sternberg & Associates in Walnut Creek.
