Farha Construction sues Ed Banda of Suede Piano Bar

WICHITA — Farha Construction has filed a lawsuit against Ed Banda of Suede Piano Bar for more than $25,000 the company says it’s owed for labor and materials.

Attorney Randy Rathbun, who is representing Farha, says Banda hasn't paid anything since signing a contract for the work at the Old Town bar in late 2007.

"These guys have infinite patience," Rathbun says of Farha, "but after . . . two years of not getting paid anything, even their patience is getting tested."

Banda says he's trying to settle the suit but won't discuss it further in case it goes to court.
