3.01. This is a suit for injunctive relief, including a temporary restraining order without
notice, a preliminary injunction for declaratory judgment, and for damages.
3.02. Jurisdiction is proper in this case under 28 U.S.C. §1332 because this is a civil
matter where the amount in controversy exceeds the sum of Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars
($75,000.00), exclusive of interest and costs, and is between citizens of different states.
3.03. Plaintiffs also invoke the courts supplemental jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. §1367
because certain questions of state law may be involved.
3.04. Venue is proper in this COUlt under 28 U.S.C. §1391 (a) (2) because the Eastern
District of Texas is a judicial district in which a substantial part of the events or omissions giving
rise to the claim occurred and in which a substantial patt of the property that is the subject of this
action is situated. Moreover, this case requires the Court to consltue and enforce a written
contractual agreement which is performable at least in part in the State of Texas and in the
Eastern District of the State of Texas.
3.05. Defendants have substantial and significant contacts within the State of Texas and
within the Eastern District of Texas, in that a substantial patt of the negotiations and agreements
Perritt, et al. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, et al. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 3 of14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 4 of 14
that the parties reached in settlement of the prior lawsuit, the enforcement of which is now in
dispute were negotiated by the individual Defendant while she was present in Texas and the
Eastern District, and such negotiations by said Defendant were on behalf of her company, the
other Defendant. Moreover, a great volume of telephonic, email and text communication
concerning same have been had between the Defendants in Nevada and Plaintiff in Texas.
Further, the threatened actions of the Defendant will directly damage these Texas Plaintiffs. The
actions threatened to be taken will cause damage directly to said Defendants in the State of Texas
and the Eastern District.
IV, FACTS
4.01. The Defendant PAMELA JENKINS is the niece of Plaintiff RICKY PERRITT. In July
2005, PAMELA JENKINS along with LAURA SANTO PIETRO ("PIETRO") and DAWN KALMAN
("KALMAN") formed a Limited Liability Company in the State of Nevada known as THE
CUPCAKERY, LLC. JENKINS, PIETRO, and KALMAN each owned a one-third (Ih) interest in the
Business and each was named a Co-Manager of the Business.
4.02. Defendant PAMELA JENKINS did not have sufficient funds to pay any capital
contribution when the Business was formed. In 2005 she requested the Plaintiff RICKY PERRITT,
brother of her mother, to lend her the money. PERRITT agreed and advanced the sum of Ninety-
Five Thousand Dollars ($95,000.00) to JENKINS as a loan to her personally. JENKINS later
executed a promissory note acknowledging the debt. The terms and provisions of paying back
the note have been renegotiated several times, but at present JENKINS owes approximately Sixty
Thousand Dollars ($60,000.00) on the note she executed, payable to PERRITT in Denton County,
Texas.
Perritt, et al. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, et a1. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 40f14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 5 of 14
4.03. In 2007, JENKINS became embroiled in a dispute with her pal1ners PIETRO and
KALMAN. She confided in PERRITT that she believed KALMAN was attempting to take control of
the Business by purchasing PIETRO'S interest.
4.04. JENKINS asked PERRITT to lend her the sum of Two Hundred Thousand Dollars
($200,000.00) to buyout PIETRO and KALMAN. PERRITT refused to lend the money, pat1icularly
in light of the fact that the initial loan that he had made to JENKINS had not been paid back and its
terms of payment had been renegotiated and extended on several occasions.
4.05. JENKINS implored PERRITT to act in order to save her from the oppressive conduct
of KALMAN. PERRITT agreed to advance JENKINS the funds to buyout the pat1ners conditioned
upon JENKINS agreement to immediately assign him a two-thirds e13) interest in the Company.
4.06. JENKINS agreed and on the 20
th
day of April 2007 PERRITT attd JENKINS entered
into a one (I) page written Agreement which provided, among other things, that JENKINS would
purchase the membership interest of LAURA SANTO PIETRO and DAWN KALMAN in THE
CUPCAKERY, LLC; that PERRITT would pay to JENKINS or directly to KALMAN or PIETRO the sum
of that money necessary to purchase the interests of PIETRO and KALMAN; that JENKINS would
immediately transfer attd assign to PERRITT One Hundred percent (100%) of the interest acquired
from PIETRO and KALMAN "including but not limited to all voting, economic and management
rights of PIETRO and KALMAN in THE CUPCAKERY, LLC". The Agreement provided that JENKINS
and PERRITT would execute an Assignment and Assumption of Limited Liability Company
interest.
4.07. On the same day, April 20
th
, 2007, PERRITT and JENKINS executed the Assignment
and Assumption of Limited Liability Company interest. The effect of that Agreement was that
Perritt, el a1. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, el a1. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 5 of14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 6 of 14
PERRITT stepped into the shoes of KALMAN and PIETRO as a two-thirds CZh) owner of the
Company.
4.08. Under the terms of that document the Parties granted each other a preferential
right to purchase each other's interest. Effectively, each party got a right of first refusal where
they had the right but not the obligation to purchase the interest of the other under the same telms
and conditions as a good faith purchaser of said interest.
4.09. After PERRITT approximately paid Two Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars
($225,000.00) to PIETRO and KALMAN to became the majority owner of the Company, the Pal1ies
discussed and agreed that expanding the Company based upon the trademark, trade name,
intellectual property and goodwill attached to that name and the excellent product produced by
the Company would be a desirable and prudent thing to do.
4.10. JENKINS proposed that LAS VEGAS open a second (2
nd
) store in that city. PERRITT
agreed to advance the funds to open that store and did so by advancing the sum of One Hundred
Eighty-Seven Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($187,500.00) as a loan to LAS VEGAS. LAS
VEGAS is repaying that loan, which is set up on a promissory note bearing interest at ten percent
(10%) per annum. The note has a present unpaid balance of approximately Sixty Thousand
Dollars ( ~ $ 6 0 , 0 0 0 . 0 0 ) . The note is payable to PERRITT in Denton County, Texas. That store
opened January 2008.
4.11. Thereafter, PERRITT, with the full knowledge and approval of JENKINS, and using
his own funds, opened a store in Frisco, Collin County, Texas called "THE CUPCAKERY." The
store used the same recipes, name, marks, and other intellectual property that had been
developed by the Nevada Limited Liability Company. JENKINS contributed no capital to the
Frisco, Texas store but did appear at the grand opening. The FRISCO location is organized as a
Perritt, el aJ. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, el aJ. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 6 of14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 7 of 14
separate Texas Limited Liability Company, "THE CUPCAKERY. A TEXAS LLC" is the name of
that company. That company is in good standing with the State of Texas and operated by
PERRITT as the sole member.
4.12. Subsequently, PERRITT, using his own funds, opened another store in Texas in the
City and County of Dallas. PERRITT has formed a separate Texas Limited Liability Company
known as BUSTER BAKAKING, LLC to own and operate the store in question and has entered into
a Lease Agreement in which he has personally guaranteed the sum of Three Hundred Thousand
Dollars ($300,000.00) future rentals.
4.13 In September 2009 the Parties had a dispute over who owned what. In order to
resolve this PERRITT filed suit against Jenkins in this Court seeking declaratory judgment and
other relief. Defendant Jenkins never answered that suit. However, she was represented by an
attomey named Kirk Kaplan in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr. Kaplan prevailed on counsel for
Plaintiff to attempt to resolve the matter and after negotiations a settlement agreement was
reached. A true and correct copy of that settlement agreement and certain documents executed
pursuant thereto is attached hereto as Exhibit A, incorporated by reference and made pali hereof
for all purposes. The essence of the settlement agreement was that PERRITT received an
assignment from Jenkins and THE CUPCAKERY, LLC, a Nevada Limited Liability Company,
Defendants, herein, of an undivided 50% interest in all trademarks, tradenames, and intellectual
property owned by them with respect to the cupcake business.
4.14 The Parties fuliher agreed as to a portion of the intellectual property a website
"TheCupcakery.com" that the landing page of the website would direct all developmental and
media inquires outside Nevada to PERRITT and all such inside Nevada to JENKINS. PERRITT
obtained the right to hire any national media firm and to design the web's landing page.
Perritt, et aJ. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, et al. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 7 of14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 8 of 14
4.15 Jenkins received 100% of the stores in Nevada and PERRITT received 100% of the
stores in Texas. The agreement provided that PERRITT and Jenkins individually would each own
an undivided 50% interest in all THE CUPCAKERyTM trademarks, tradenames and intellectual
propelty. Each Party had an obligation to conduct their respective businesses in such a manner
as to protect the names and marks. All inquiries about development opportunities were required
to be directed by JENKINS to PERRITT The Parties were to maintain a joint Cupcakery website,
the format to be agreed upon by the Patties and the website was required fairly and prominently
to direct all inquires about development opportunities outside Nevada to PERRITT. The
agreement fmther provided that the Patties agreed not to disparage each other in any way or to
take any action which might damage the trademarks, tradenames or intellectual property of THE
CUPCAKERyTM.
4.16 The Parties executed the settlement agreement and all suppOlting documents. The
parties agreed on the format for the website and the same was set up.
4.17 The website "TheCupcakery.com" is the first website that appears when one does
an intemet search of the telm "cupcakery". Although there are other "Cupcakery's" such as
"Sift, a cupcakery" no other person may use the tradename owned by these patties, to: "THE
CUPCAKERyTM".
4.18 The Plaintiffs incorporate herein by reference as if copied fully at length verbatim
herein the AFFIDAVIT OF RICKY B. PERRITT in support of their Motion for Temporary Restraining
Order.
4.19 Jenkins has apparently become dissatisfied with the Agreement that she made and
has acted to breach same in several respects. Although she has an obligation to protect the
intellectual property, including the trademark and tradenames she has refused to pay her share of
Perritt, et al. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, et al. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 8 of14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 9 of 14
legal and other expenses to protect said tradenames and trademarks. Plaintiff PERRITT has had to
finance a lawsuit in California against a third party which was settled on favorable terms and
reserved THE CUPCAKERyTM for the parties to this case. PERRITT advanced considerable sum of
his own money. Jenkins has failed and refused and continues to fail and refuse to pay her share
of these legal expenses in the sum of approximately Eight Thousand Dollars ($8,000.00).
JENKINS has further stated that she will not pay any monies or take any measures necessary to
protect THE CUPCAKERyTM intellectual property. She has further stated that she will give the
right to use the name to third patties without consideration of any sort.
4.20 PERRITT has attempted to discuss these differences in a rationale manner but has
been unable to persuade Jenkins ofher responsibilities under the agreement they reached.
4.21 The website "TheCupcakery.com" is hosted by a company called
BannerView.com located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Because the THE CUPCAKERY, LLC, a Nevada
Limited Liability Company had a previous 5 year contract with the company who hosted the
website, the Parties continued to have that company host the website. The Patties agreed on the
landing page and the format of the website and BannerView.com has hosted the same since the
Parties reached their settlement.
4.22 Jenkins has recently said that she is gomg to "take down" the website
"TheCupcakery.com" because it is "hers", and use it as a separate website and has told the
Plaintiff PERRITT that he needs to create another website. PERRITT owns a 50% undivided
interest in all the intellectual property including the website and to switch websites from the one
website that gets the most hits when "Cupcakery" is entered on any search engine would cause
substantial and irreparable harm.
Perritt, et al. v. Pamela F. Jenkins, et al. - Plaintiffs' Original Complaint Page 9 of14
Case 4:11-cv-00023 Document 1 Filed 01/14/11 Page 10 of 14
4.23 On or about January 12, 2011 Jenkins sent PERRITT an email stating that she was
going to "pull down" of the website. PERRITT attempted to discuss this with her and although
she cursed and refused to discuss the matter rationally, it is PERRITT'S belief that she intends to
take the website "TheCupcakery,com" and use it has her own website, leaving PERRITT without a
website and causing irreparable hatm,
4.24 Plaintiff PERRITT'S Affidavit states in detail the reasons that such conduct by
JENKINS would cause immediate and irreparable harm to him and to his restaurants. PERRITT has
three restaurants in Texas and is on the verge of opening another. This website gets many hits
each day from people inquiring about location, catering, and placing pick up orders. Moreover,
the website directs all inquiries about investments, development, franchising and licensing in any
location outside the State of Nevada to him, PERRITT fi'equently receives inquiries and is
seriously considering business propositions to open stores in Massachusetts and Florida. Having
the website down for any length of time will cause PERRITT to be unable to communicate with
potential investors, franchisees, or licensees.
4.25 Jenkins' threat concerning the website was specific as to time. She said she
intends to take action on Monday, January 17, 20 II. There is insufficient time to notify Jenkins
or her attorney and hold a hearing prior to the time of her threatened action. As of the time of
filing this suit, as stated in the Certificate of the undersigned attorney, JENKINS' Nevada attorney,
Kirk Kaplan has been unable to confirm that his client will enter into an Agreed Temporary
Restraining Order or otherwise agree to conform to the terms and provisions ofthe agreement.
4.26 Unless this Court grants appropriate relief in terms of a temporat·y restraining
order without notice, PERRITT and the Plaintiff companies will be reparably harmed and injured
without any adequate legal remedy.
