TAMPA, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – A St. Petersburg, Florida retail store is seeking a review of its suspension as a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) retailer.

Shadyside Meat Market Inc. and Nabil Hussein Zabadi filed a complaint on June 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against United States of America seeking a request for judicial review.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Oct. 23, 2017, Shadyside Meat Market Inc. and Nabil Hussein Zabadi were disqualified by the defendant from participating as a SNAP retailer for six months as punishment for allegedly selling ineligible items at their retail store.

The plaintiffs are seeking a review of the suspension and request that it be set aside in favor of a warning letter and to reinstate its approval as a SNAP retailer.

The plaintiffs seek judgment reversing defendant's decision not to issue a hardship civil money penalty and costs incurred. They are represented by Andrew Z. Tapp of Metropolitan Law Group PPC in Brandon, Florida.
