ST. LOUIS — A wholesaler is suing Mast-Jagermeister US Inc., and other liquor manufacturers and competitor, alleging breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
Major Brands Inc. filed a complaint on Feb. 13 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they violated the Missouri Franchise Law.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, as a result of the defendants' actions, the plaintiff will suffer irreparable injuries for loss of business, loss of profits and loss of substantial investments in marketing and distribution of the defendants' products.
The plaintiff holds Mast-Jagermeister and others responsible because they allegedly purported to terminate a distribution agreement without establishing good cause and without providing any reasonable grounds.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks an order declaring that defendants have no rights to terminate plaintiff as a wholesaler and that such termination is null and void, award for litigation costs and expenses, and all other relief that the court may deem just and proper. It is represented by Richard B. Walsh Jr., Evan Z. Reid and Oliver H. Thomas of Lewis Rice LLC in St. Louis.
