A Trumbull County judge has granted judgment against Tracey E. and Thomas J. Obermiyer in a civil suit alleging that Tracey Obermiyer stole money from a local veterinary practice.
Village Green Veterinary Service Inc. and Kilar Properties LLC, which have a veterinary office at 380 Route 7, Brookfield, said Tracey Obermiyer stole money from the businesses when she was office manager, and caused additional loss in interest, penalties, late fees and other expenses.
Brookfield police charged Tracey Obermiyer with criminal offenses and she has been indicted by a Trumbull County grand jury with grand theft, identity fraud and forgery. She has pleaded not guilty and her next court date is a pretrial hearing on Nov. 3.
The Obermiyers did not respond to the civil suit, and the plaintiffs asked for default judgment, which was granted July 27 by Judge Peter J. Kontos.
Kontos ordered the Obermiyers to pay $243,023 in direct damages, plus 4 percent interest starting on Jan.
31, 2019, the date Tracey Obermiyer was fired.
A hearing will be held to determine punitive damages, Kontos said.
