Kurt Huffman is being sued over ownership claims of the popular Portland sandwich chain Lardo.

Ramzy Hattar alleges he was unduly disallowed from a stake in the company’s North Williams location.

The lawsuit, filed this afternoon in Multnomah County Circuit Court, also alleges Huffman and [Rick] Gencarelli secretly diverted $200,000 from the two other Lardo locations into the North Williams location and the bakery Phillippe’s Bread.

Phillippe’s doubles as a commissary baker for other restaurants in Huffman’s ChefStable empire, which includes Ox, P.R.E.A.M. and St. Jack.
