PBI filed a lawsuit against Lake Norman Ballroom, owned by Todd Liddell and Janine DiPierro, for breach of contract. DiPierro and Liddell purchased the franchise rights for the Cornelius/Lake Norman region on December 3, 2016. They assumed control of the facility already in existence in Cornelius.
Liquidated damages for the improper closures of the Cornelius and Concord locations, responsibilities of DiPierro and Liddell, exceeded one hundred thousand dollars. In 2018, Janine DiPierro filed for bankruptcy.
In January 2019, Janine DiPierro joined in the on comments made by Kristin Heck, opening herself up to additional lawsuits for defamation of character. This is yet another example of this group of franchisee business owner partners refusing to take responsibility for their own actions.
PBI dismissed the case due to Janine DiPierro‘s bankruptcy. Public record of DiPierro‘s bankruptcy can be found below.
