OROVILLE – A Gridley company alleges that a Paradise company breached the terms of a buyout agreement.
L&R Distribution Inc. filed a complaint on Feb. 11 in the Butte Superior Court against Elliot D. Tenter, Tenter Enterprises Inc. and Does 1 through 10 alleging accounting, breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff and defendants are independent package delivery contractors for FedEx for Butte County. The suit states in 2018, a contracted service area was available and the plaintiff and TEI agreed to a joint venture to acquire and operate it.
