Maryland businesses may be interested in the story of one man's restaurant investment that ended in multiple lawsuits. The final trial ended in a settlement.
In the early months of 2011, a New York man entered a partnership with two other men, investing up to $75,000 in the restaurant that the two men owned in Waldorf. The investor also worked in the restaurant's kitchen for three months as a cook. According to reports, the investor was paid only twice during this time, totaling $2,000. Four months after his initial investment, the man then asked his two partners for a certificate of ownership or some other documentation of their partnership.
