Earl O’Garro Jr., the embattled chief executive officer of Hybrid Insurance Group, has made headlines for being the target of state and federal investigations, for allegedly failing to pay $670,000 in premiums to two of the city’s insurance carriers and more.
It also appears that the lawsuits against him are piling up. In October, we reported that AmTrust E&S Insurance Services sued O’Garro, charging that he received at least $300,000 for premiums on several policies, but failed to send the money to insurance carriers. The suit also says O’Garro “made false statements and sent forged e-mails purportedly” from AmTrust employees.
On Dec. 3, the landlord of O’Garro’s now-defunct Main Street restaurant in Middletown filed a lawsuit against him, accusing him of breaching the terms of his lease contract. You can view that lawsuit here: Noremac v Marlbro
Also, on Nov. 26, the Norwich-based U.S. Food Inc. sued O’Garro, saying he owed more than $18,000 for deliveries (apparently to his restaurant — Us Restaurant and Lounge). You can see that suit here: US Foods v Marlbro
In both suits, the plaintiffs are seeking more than $15,000 in damages.
