A business partnership claims it lost out on significant profits when members of their partnership elected to enter into another contract.

Muhammad T. Aziz, Texas Realms, Texas Teal, Imtiaz Anwar, Anwar Family Partners, Imtiaz Managers and Harbor Hospice of Beaumont filed a lawsuit June 20 in Jefferson County District Court against Harbor Hospice Managers, Harbor Healthcare System, HHCS Managers, Harbor Hospice of Beaumont and Qamar Arfeen.

The plaintiffs say Anwar Family Partners and Harbor Hospice Managers are involved in a partnership agreement to provide inpatient hospice care and related services.

However, the defendants breached the partnership when they entered into a contract with Harbor Healthcare System and paid "unreasonable sums of to Defendant, Harbor Healthcare System," the suit states.

The plaintiffs say the defendants misappropriated money that belonged to the partnership.

In their complaint, the plaintiffs seek a judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus pre- and post-judgment interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.

Chris M. Portner and J. Trenton Bond of Portner Bond in Beaumont and Anthony Malley of Moore Landrey in Beaumont will be representing them.

The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.

Case No. D190-317
