The lawsuit-plagued downtown hot doggery, Dog Nuvo, at 1724 Main sold its last frankfurter last week. Business partners Harry Blasco and Marshall Roth finally decided enough was enough.
"I'm destroyed by the decision, of course," says Roth, who is still fighting a lawsuit filed a year ago by his former employer Ken McClain, attorney, restaurant owner and Independence bigwig. McClain claims that Blasko and Roth stole trade secrets from him.
Roth has had a couple of job offers, but from restaurants in other states. "I'd be interested," he says, "but I'm taking care of my mother, who is an invalid. It would be hard to move right now.
"I'm not looking for some high-profile position," Roth says. "I'll be a sous chef, a line cook. I need to work. I'll even wait tables at this point."
Got a job for Mr. Roth?
