HOUSTON — A Houston petrochemical company is suing a former employee, alleging fraud, unlawful appropriation and unjust enrichment.
Vinmar International Ltd. filed a complaint Feb. 23 in Harris County District Court against Kavita Duvvuru, alleging violation of the Texas Theft Liability Act.
According to the complaint, Duvvuru's unlawful appropriation caused Vinmar to be deprived of its property and sustained damages of more than $2 million. The plaintiff alleges Duvvuru altered credit card records, created fictitious documents and withdrew cash from the plaintiff's credit cards without authority.
Vinmar International seeks trial by jury, a temporary restraining order to prevent Duvvuru from deleting any documents and from disposing any property that she obtained from using the plaintiff's funds, all damages, interest, litigation costs and all other just and equitable relief. It is represented by attorneys Jean C. Frizzell, Solace K. Southwick and Lindsey Raspino of Reynolds Frizzell LLP in Houston, and by David Gerger and Matt Hennessey of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan in Houston.
