Sister sues brother over future of Claremont restaurant
A family feud over a now-closed restaurant in Claremont has resulted in a lawsuit.
The Eagle Times reported that Debra Holl recently filed the lawsuit in Sullivan County Superior Court in Newport. She said her brother and business partner, Michael Holl, has run BJ Bricker’s into the ground, with plans to sell it out from under her.
The Washington Street restaurant shut down this week.
Michael Holl declined to comment. The Holls, of Springfield, Vt., inherited the business when their mother, Gertrude Holl, died in 2008.
In her lawsuit, Debra Holl says she signed over power-of-attorney to her brother in December, when she checked into a hospital for an undisclosed illness; she was released in March. She said she wants to stop her brother from selling the business.
