BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The lawsuit against area design firm “Nikki Levy Interiors” continues with a judge refusing to dismiss the case filed by a Boca Bridges Homeowner questioning how $115,000 of his money was spent. Now custom designer Lee Parker has been named as a co-defendant.
As we reported on August 13th: “Nikki Levy Interiors, located on NW 2nd Avenue in Boca Raton, is being sued by homeowner Robert Beyer. Beyer claims in the suit that the company routinely purchased higher-priced products than what Beyer wanted to generate a greater commission. Beyer alleges Nikki Levy Interiors wouldn’t provide an accounting of how the company spent $115,000.”
Beyer claims in the suit that “clandestine” meetings were held between Nikki Levy Interiors and vendors. Beyer, according to the suit, was routinely denied access to the meetings, topics discussed, and decisions made.
Among the vendors allegedly taking part in what the suit suggests is deception: Lee Parker Custom Designers. The suit claims Nikki Levy Interiors provided $30,000 of Beyer’s funds to Lee Parker. But according to the suit, Parker’s company defaulted by breaching the following obligations:
“provide their services to Plaintiff on a reasonable schedule and priority basis; provide Plaintiff with a conforming and up to standard sectional; provide Plaintiff with a conforming and up to standard bolster; provide Plaintiff with a conforming and up to standard ottoman; and provide Plaintiff with three (3) conforming and up to standard roller shades…”
From the original filing which Beyer claims Nikki Levy breached: “The Agreement states that NLI (Nikki Levy Interiors) has chosen a percentage-based fee arrangement, rather than a time-based fee arrangement, because “Client’s project is a creative and collaborative process with Client and third parties, and NLI has found that it does not want to be constrained by time in this creative and collaborative process. NLI wants to dedicate as much time as is needed without restrictions. NLI fails to mention that it will ignore the directives of the Client and choose Decorative Products and Contracted Services that have exorbitant prices so that fee is higher.”
Nikki Levy Interiors engaged in a public relations blitz following BocaNewsNow.com’s reporting on the lawsuit in August. Defense attorneys attempted multiple times to have the suit dismissed, but Judge Janis Keyers has refused to do so.
The suit continues in Palm Beach County Circuit Court. Read the latest complaint below.
