The Oregonian reports this morning that Little Big Burger's Micah Camden is facing a lawsuit over his rapidly expanding mini-burger empire. According to paperwork obtained by the O, former Fats partner Clint Elliot is seeking $97,000, alleging that he came up with the idea to "launch a spin-off burger joint" based on the popularity of Fats' slider, and that Camden neglected his gastropub in order to concentrate on the stolen concept: "Elliott's attorneys argue that Camden began neglecting Fats, first taking the little big burger and truffle-spritzed fries off the menu, then closing the restaurant periodically to concentrate on opening Little Big Burger." Camden declined to comment for the O article.
