Spokane company suing pro sports teams

SPOKANE — A Spokane-based company is suing several professional sports teams for breach of contract.

Vizant Technologies LLC recently filed lawsuits in Spokane County Superior Court against teams including the Detroit Lions, the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago White Sox.

The Spokesman-Review reported the company, which serves clients around the U.S. and Canada, advises businesses on how to lower the cost of accepting electronic payments.

Under the company’s standard agreement, the client must pay a consulting fee of 50 percent of all savings if it decides to implement Vizant’s program.

Nicholas D. Kovarik, attorney for the company, said the teams all stopped paying in the same time frame and may be working together.
