Deerfield-News.com-Deerield Beach Fl,-Updated- A lawsuit has been filed in the matter of the lease and its expiration date for Deerfield Beach Cafe.The cafe is on the beach at the pier in a city owned building.
Class Act Restaurant Group LLC -D/B/A Deerfield Beach Cafe has filed a lawsuit against the City of Deerfield Beach.
Online records indicate the lawsuit was filed electronically on October 23,2023.
It appears Class Act has retained Attorney Fred Schwartz of Boca Raton and the law firm of Shahady and Wurtenberger of Fort Lauderdale.
The Electronically Certified Court Record indicates Class Act Restaurant Group LLC is seeking injunctive relief seeking a permanent injunction barring the city of Deerfield Beach from evicting them.The plaintiff is also seeking declaratory relief from the court.The plaintiff alleges the City of Deerfield Beach entered into a 5 year extension on or about October of 2022.
Class Act alleges they were given a five year extension and the subsequent bid process was not conducted according to law.That there was a violation of the”Cone Of Silence” whereby representatives of Deerfield Beach Cafe LLC had a look at Class Acts presentation with the City’s purchasing manager in violation of the cone of silence.
The city has entered into a new lease with the current owner of Ocean’s 234 Danielle Rosse and was expecting the current operator Class Act DBA Deerfield Cafe to vacate the restaurant by October 28th a day after expiration.
Online records show the Danielle Rosse revocable trust registered the name Deerfield Beach Cafe LLC on April 5 2023.
There seems to be an issue with using the name Deerfield Beach Cafe which is registered with the State of Florida as a “fictitious name” owned by Class Act Restaurant Group LLC. It appears you can register a corporation or LLC even if another person uses that name and has registered it as a fictitious name.
