AEG Files A Motion To Dismiss Ozzy’s ‘Tying’ Class Action Suit

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Promoter AEG has filed a motion to dismiss a class-action lawsuit brought by rock icon Ozzy Osbourne, accusing the promoter of anti-trust violations.

The lawsuit, filed by Osbourne in March, accuses AEG of ‘tying’ performances together to force artists to who want to play at venues like the O2 in London, to also perform at AEG venues in competitive markets such as Los Angeles, instead of The Forum, a rival venue operated by a joint venture between Irving Azoff and Madison Square Garden.
