Case closed! RHOSLC star Monica Garcia’s lawsuit against co-star Heather Gay’s company, Beauty Lab, has been dismissed. Get all the details!
The U.S. Sun reports that Monica Garcia’s lawsuit against RHOSLC co-star Heather Gay’s Beauty Lab + Laser company has officially been dismissed.
A Utah judge dismissed Monica’s lawsuit against Beauty Lab + Laser on January 17.
After reviewing all of the pleadings in connection to the case, the court dismissed the RHOLSC rookie’s case since her claim is “time-barred by the statute of limitations” and Monica “failed to obtain a certificate of compliance from the Division of Professional Licensing.”
The court also noted that a hearing on the case would not be helpful because “the law is clear and straightforward in this matter.”
Beauty Lab + Laser’s lawsuit against Monica is still active.
Beauty Lab + Laser claims in legal documents that Monica signed a contract with them on December 10, 2019, to pay $2,449 for cosmetic injection services. The RHOSLC newbie only paid the initial payment of $449, including the $49 set-up fee and $400 down payment.
Monica was supposed to make $200 monthly payments over the next ten months, which she failed to do.
Beauty Lab + Laser claims they “suffered, and continues to suffer, significant losses and damages” due to the RHOSLC newbie’s lack of payment.
Then, in September, the RHOSLC newbie countersued Beauty Lab + Laser. She later amended her response to Beauty Lab + Laser’s lawsuit and filed a counterclaim on November 7.
Monica sued Beauty Lab + Laser for “breach of independent duty of care, breach of contract, and breach of duty of good faith and fair dealing.”
In her filing, Monica admits she did make an initial payment of $449. As for why she did not continue to make monthly payments, Monica claims she “received defective, negligently given injections, which did not have the intended, promised result.”
Due to the “botched” injections, the RHOSLC newbie had to go to another “competent party to fix the damage” to her nose and lips. She does note that Beauty Lab offered to fix the damaged nose and lips.
She said: “The parties reached an oral accord and satisfaction wherein Monica paid for another, competent party to fix the damage to Monica’s nose and lips caused by the incompetent, negligent actions of Beauty Lab’s staff, and Beauty Lab was entitled to no further payment.”
Monica claims that Beauty Lab “promised” they would not seek further payment from her since she “suffered more damages” than they occurred.
The 40-year-old alleges that the injections into her nose were done “in a negligent, medically deficient manner” that “diminished” her appearance, adding that “the appearance of Monica’s lips was not improved.”
