A lawsuit has been filed in federal court against the company responsible for a failed artificial sweetener factory in Moberly.
Mamtek U.S. Inc. planned to employ several hundred people at the central Missouri plant, and Moberly issued $39 million in bonds to pay for the project.
But Mamtek missed a bond payment and the plant still is under construction. Moberly has said it does not plan to pay off remaining bonds.
