WICHITA — Wink Hartman Sr. and his Hartmoor Investments have sued Casey Bachrodt over land they purchased together in a retail area in front of the Walmart in Gardner.
According to the suit, which was filed in Sedgwick County District Court, the two formed BRIC Gardner in 2008. The entity borrowed $1.95 million from Security Savings Bank, which the suit says Hartman and Bachrodt personally guaranteed.
The suit says that "BRIC Gardner was not an income producing enterprise," so Hartman, through Hartmoor Investments, and Bachrodt made capital contributions to BRIC to pay the loan.
The suit says that beginning in August of 2010, Bachrodt started failing to make necessary capital contributions and Hartmoor Investments made up the difference, which was almost $360,000.
With interest, Hartman and Hartmoor are now seeking more than $410,000 under the operating agreement.
Hartman's attorney declined comment on the case. Bachrodt didn't return calls to comment.
