Spring, Magnolia residents sue Cy-Fair business partner for abandonment
Owners of a flight training school are suing a business partner after, they say, he damaged the business by abandoning an aircraft and his duties.
Spring resident Mark Parsons and Magnolia resident David Huggett filed a lawsuit on Aug. 12 in the Harris County District Court against Cy-Fair resident Robert Cunningham, citing breach of contract, fraud, negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty and conversion.
Huggutt and Parsons say that, in 2006, they joined with Cunningham to form Justfly Flying Club Corp., with Cunningham agreeing to manage and maintain the aircraft used for flight instruction.
The suit alleges that Cunningham shirked his responsibilities in the company, including refusing the plaintiffs access to the aircraft for more than six months, leaving the plane idle, letting it deteriorate, and eventually abandoning the aircraft altogether.
The plaintiffs are seeking injunctive relief, as well as damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Woodlands attorney Gary Evans.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-47737.
