Swadley’s Foggy Bottom Kitchen, LLC, filed two legal documents Tuesday in connection to the investigation into its business with the state of Oklahoma. One was a counterclaim to the state’s lawsuit against it and the other a lawsuit against a former employee.

According to court documents, Swadley’s claims Breuklander was a disgruntled former employee who talked to media in April 2022, alleging that Swadley’s overcharged the state of Oklahoma as part of its tourism deal involving the Foggy Bottom Kitchen restaurants at state parks.

Swadley’s alleges that Breuklander defamed its business and that even if the allegations were true, Breuklander was the executive involved with implementing any agreements with the state.
