HOUSTON – An owner of an ambulance service alleges in a state district lawsuit that he is owed half of the business’s profits.
Harris County District Court records show that Aaron Sykes sued Colossal EMS, LLC; Ali Saleh; and Raphael W. Mnyavanu for breach of contract in the 157th District Court on Oct. 31.
Sykes and Saleh formed Colossal EMS. The men purportedly agreed that any revenue generated would be split 50/50 between them.
According to the suit, Saleh and the venture refused to Sykes any portion of the profits. The plaintiff was also denied access to Colossal EMS’s financial and business records, the complaint says.
Saleh is additionally accused of pairing with Mnyavanu to “amend corporate documents, without proper authorization, to reflect that” the latter is currently the sole owner of the business.
“Simply put, the defendants have absconded with revenue and profits from Colossal EMS and improperly restricted the plaintiff’s access to the company’s records and financial information, even though the plaintiff is an owner and shareholder,” court papers say.
Consequently, Sykes seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Jared G. Flynn of Flynn Law, L.L.C. in Houston is representing the plaintiff.
