Turkey Leg Hut co-owner Nakia Price filed a lawsuit in mid-July against a co-owner of the restaurant. Things are getting messy for the owners of the Third Ward's ultra-popular Turkey Leg Hut, and it has nothing to do with the restaurant's Texas-sized turkey legs. Business partners who co-own the restaurant are in the middle of two lawsuits that accuse each other of stealing money for personal gain, fraud and other explosive claims, according to Eater Houston. The first lawsuit was filed on July 8 by Turkey Leg Hut co-owner Steve Rogers and accuses co-owner and well-known community figure Nakia Price of using funds and supplies from the flagship restaurant for her other food trucks and catering gigs without compensating other shareholders. Rogers also owns Bar , which is located down the street from the Turkey Leg Hut and recently made headlines after it was destroyed in an explosion that is suspected as a case of arson. Rogers' lawsuit also argues ownership stakes amid an extensive list of other financial mismanagement claims against Price. Price responded by filing her own lawsuit on July 15 in which she accuses Rogers of embezzling, pocketing thousands of dollars in valet parking fees over more than a year and "lying about securing a rent deferral agreement" that ultimately threatened the restaurant's lease, according to Eater.
