The suit said the Plaintiffs “persistently” attempted to contact Marques and Chris to “resolve the nonpayment of funds which they were due.” However, the suit said, “on multiple occasions, the Defendants would fail to respond to text and phone communications for months on end, all of which Plaintiffs experienced substantial financial hardship dealing with the unexpected drop in income in their respective business and personal lives.”
