A local business and residents are suing, alleging a real estate contract was breached.

Tara Driskell, doing business as Salon Elle, and Dustin Driskell filed a lawsuit May 2 in the Jefferson County Court against Gade Satyanarayana Reddy, citing breach of contract, declaratory judgment, promissory estoppel, common law fraud, statutory fraud and negligence.

The complaint states the plaintiffs and defendant entered into an escrow money contract concerning the sale and purchase of commercial property at 922 S. Twin Highway in Nederland.
