COLUMBUS (CN) - Brandon and Syndrea Shy cheat customers of their wedding and catering service, and responded to complaints by, among other things, "trying to punch a youth minister," "busting beer bottles all over the floor at the wedding reception," "throwing the food in a flower bed at the wedding reception," "yelling at the consumers, threatening to sue the consumers, and accusing the consumers of being racist and members of the Ku Klux Klan," the State of Ohio claims in Franklin County Court.
The Shys operate under a variety of names, including Eat My Ribs/Classic Event Catering dba Syndi Shy Classic Events dba Eat My Ribs BBQ Catering dba Tailgate BBQ dba Eat My Ribs Southern BBQ Catering, Southern Comfort Catering & Weddings and Events by Syndrea dba Weddings by Syndrea dba Shy's Comfort Catering, and Brandon Shy Restaurants LLC, the Ohio attorney general says.
The State also says Syndi Shy lied to the Delaware, Ohio, Municipal Court during a May 2007 debtor's exam by stating that she was no longer in business.
The state wants costs, fines, an injunction, and it wants the Shys to cooperate with its requests for information, and with court orders.
