Promoter To Pay For Bluesmasters Suit
Colorado entertainment company Blues Events LLC’s lawsuit alleged fraud and breach of contract and the baseball team countersued. But in a twist, the judge presiding over the case sided with the team and closed the case, ordering Blues Events to pay $215,668, according to court documents obtained by the Lincoln Journal Star.
Blues Events’ suit had accused the president of the team and the university of secretly adding a clause requiring a $100,000 payment to the venue prior to the Bluesmasters Concert, and leaving out the language when the contract was read over the phone.
An attorney for the team requested a summary judgment noting that Blues Events had the chance to read the contract before it was signed, the paper said. The judge agreed, calling the complaint frivolous.
