CLEARWATER — A Pinellas County accountancy service provider is suing an accounting firm, alleging unfair and deceptive trade practices.
Timothy C. Daily CPA PA and Timothy C. Daily, individually, filed a complaint Oct. 17 in Pinellas Circuit Court against Carr Riggs & Ingram LLC and David Sietsma, alleging failure to fully compensate for the plaintiffs' services.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 1, 2016, Daily CPA entered into a bill of sale, assignment and assumption agreement with the defendants. As a result of the defendants' conduct, the suit says, the plaintiff's business has been damaged and incurred lost profits.
The plaintiff alleges Carr Riggs & Ingram and Sietsma, despite Daily complying with all contractual obligations, on Aug. 13, 2018, terminated the plaintiff's services without notice and has refused to pay the quarterly revenue payments due for the second and third quarters of 2018.
Daily seeks trial by jury, damages in excess of $15,000, plus court costs, interest and attorney fees. He is represented by attorney Charles A. Buford of Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel & Burns LLP in Clearwater.
