Restaurateur Gordon Davis, owner of the Tampa property where the Copperfish restaurant operates, has filed an eviction lawsuit against the restaurant, claiming more than $1.3 million in unpaid rent.

Davis has been a partner in the S. Howard Avenue restaurant, but in the suit, he claims Copperfish operators notified him they intend to “liquidate.”

Chas Bruck, founder of SOHO Capital and a partner in Copperfish said he has no plans to close the restaurant, and he characterized the suit as a business dispute with the landlord.
