Ahron Lipski-Cohen filed a lawsuit in the Galveston County Circuit Court on Jan. 29, against Leslie Heratage Milici, doing business as Webster Precious Metals, over an allegedly unpaid debt.
In court documents, Lipski-Cohen, of Houston, claims he had a business relationship with Milici, a League City resident. Milici was allegedly in the business of buying gold in order to reclaim and refine it. Lipski-Cohen says he would occasionally acquire such gold from Milici and act as an intermediary between Milici and the refiners and earn a commission, according to the suit.
Lipski-Cohen claims he loaned Milici $60,000 in October, but Milici has failed to pay it off. According to the suit, Lipski-Cohen is accusing Milici of still owing more than $50,000 on that debt and is now suing in order to recover the money.
Lipski-Cohen is seeking more than $50,654 in damages plus $1,500 in costs.
He is being represented by Baytown attorney Thomas J. Niederhofer.
