A former Papillion importer of tobacco products sued on allegations the now-defunct company failed to pay thousands of dollars in federal assessments has agreed to a $28,000 judgment be entered in the case.
In a complaint filed Jan. 31, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Maverick Marketing LLC made only partial payments and owed $341,108.38 and that Kebuth Incorporated owed $164,593.
The businesses imported cigars, pipe tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco during fiscal years 2011-2014.
The suit, filed on behalf of the Commodity Credit Corporation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, also named Keith Thomas and Patricia Thomas, who ran and were shareholders in Maverick Marketing and Kebuth.
On Monday, U.S. Judge Robert F. Rossiter Jr. approved the consent agreement where the defendants agreed to pay monthly payments adding up to $28,000, plus interest and costs to satisfy their liability.
