Judge Dismisses Most Of AllGood's Jackson Lawsuit


NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A federal judge has dismissed all but one claim in the $300 million lawsuit AllGood Entertainment brought against Frank Dileo, AEG and Michael Jackson’s estate, leaving just the breach of contract claim intact.

In the lawsuit, AllGood alleges alleging that the defendants breached a contract Jackson had signed with AllGood to produce a Jackson family reunion concert. AllGood claims that the contract Jackson subsequently signed with Dileo and AEG for Jackson’s ill-fated O2 Arena residency violated the blackout date clause of AllGood’s contract with the performer.

AllGood Entertainment originally filed the lawsuit, alleging that the defendants breached a contract Jackson had signed with AllGood to produce a Jackson family reunion concert. AllGood claims that the contract Jackson subsequently signed with Dileo and AEG for Jackson’s ill-fated O2 Arena residency violated the blackout date clause of AllGood’s contract with the performer.

AllGood had also alleged that AEG and Dileo had committed fraud and tortious interference.

"AEG knew of a deal between Dileo and AllGood, but due to 'dominance and power in the live performance industry, coerced and/or induced Dileo and Jackson to disregard the agreements with AllGood and to work with it instead,” AllGood contended in the lawsuit.

The judge however, found these arguments to be less than convincing and dismissed these claims.

“The Dileo defendants make a strong showing, based on the plain language of the contract, that the binding agreement is merely an agreement to agree and should not be construed as an enforceable contract,” Judge Baer wrote. "The document itself states that it is a 'letter of intent.’” – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
