Frisch's Restaurants says a former executive stole millions from the company over several years and is taking him to court to recover it.
In a press release, Frisch's said Michael Hudson, the company's former assistant treasurer, embezzled an estimated $3.3 million from the company by forging payroll documents, creating false documents and accounting entries to divert the money into his personal bank accounts.
Frisch's said in its press release that Hudson resigned and assumed full responsibility. The civil suit has been filed in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
Developers are a step closer to turning a former manufacturing facility in Hamilton into a multi-use sports complex.

Less than two weeks after the Charlie Hebdo attacks — and the subsequent demands that followed for Muslims to denounce violence — it's got to be a tough time to produce a light-hearted podcast called "Good Muslim/Bad Muslim." But that's not what hosts Taz Ahmed and Zahra Noorbakhsh think.
The two women argue it's actually a great time to show the lighter side of the Muslim community. And it's not like non-Muslims are short of questions.
It's been almost two weeks since the terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris, but Western Europe remains on edge
In Belgium, where police killed two suspected terrorists during raids last Thursday, ministers from across the European Union gathered to discuss anti-terror measures. “Europe is absolutely still on high alert,” says the BBC's Anna Holligan, who is covering the meeting. “And just outside the European Council building, there are soldiers on guard carrying rifles.”
