OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The owner of an Omaha event-planning company accused of selling thousands of worthless airline vouchers has filed a civil lawsuit against former employees, including those that prosecutors say she bilked.
Patricia Urbanovsky’s lawsuit alleges that four employees either embezzled company funds, misled clients or reported higher sales in order to earn larger commissions. The lawsuit was filed Friday afternoon in Douglas County District Court.
Urbanovsky is charged with three felony counts of theft, accused of bilking three former employees out of more than $141,000.
Urbanovsky’s attorney, Steve Lefler, says the lawsuit will allow him to question the former employees and get to the bottom of what he believes was a conspiracy by them to dupe Urbanovsky.
