MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A San Francisco Superior Court Judge has ruled against the city's request for a new trial in the Shoreline Amphitheatre lawsuit, the Mountain View Voice has reported.
The city had contended that there had been misconduct by the jury in the first trial. The jury had confounded the city's aspirations by finding the auditors at fault in the case, but not awarding any damages to the city.
The city also alleged that the jury had been tained by two jurors, one of whom, a lawyer, trasngressed by allegedly offering legal advice during jury deliberations.
The original trial in February stemmed from what the city claimed was $22 million dollars in damages accrued between 1986 and 2004 that was concealed from them by the auditing firm Daoro, Zydel & Holland, which unbeknownst to the city, had been working as auditors for Clear Channel at the time.
The city had already won a judgement against 10 million dollar settlement from Live Nation over the affair, in 2006 – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
