7OYS case updates
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) -
A two million-dollar winner adds to his riches, the attorney general has lost patience with a Conway county business owner and a federal agency is interested in an Arkansas fire.
But first…a look at problems at a North Little Rock business that has only been open since April.
Employees at Hawgz Blues Cafe are complaining to Seven-On-Your-Side that they're not getting paid.
And a food vendor (Sysco) and the restaurant's landlord have both filed lawsuits against Kristian Nelson.
Each claims to be owed over $25,000.00.
Nelson was ordered by the owner to vacate the property by August 16th or face eviction.
UPDATE: Mr. Nelson contacted Seven-On-Your-Side after our broadcast and stated that while there were some payroll issues in the past, all employees owed money have now been caught up and paid in full...although some employees dispute that contention. Regarding the pair of lawsuits filed against him he referred us to his attorney Brooks Gill who did not answer his phone when we called.
In Saline county, it’s another win for Steve DePriest.
Back in February of 2016 DePriest won two million dollars in the lottery's "Play It Again" promotion.
His brother filed a lawsuit trying to get a piece of that prize.
Instead, Ricky DePriest has been ordered to pay his brother's attorney’s fees...which total over $100,000.00.
An investigator with the Consumer Product Safety Commission contacted Seven-On-Your-Side following a report on a microwave fire...but the agency has yet to contact home owner Crystal Batson.
Whirlpool has so far offered to replace her damaged microwave and stove but has not yet committed to address smoke damages.
And months after filing a consumer protection lawsuit against a Plumerville business, the Arkansas attorney general is tired of waiting for a response.
A motion for default judgment has been filed in the case against Nucold Refrigeration and RV Fridge House and owner Jerry Collins.
