Judge Dismisses Promoters' Multimillion Dollar Lawsuit Against Michael Jackson

A federal judge has dismissed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit by a concert promoter against Michael Jackson over the failed reunion concert.

AllGood Entertainment Inc. had sued Jackson for $40 million roughly two weeks before the singer's death. It claimed Jackson and his manager broke a contract for a Jackson reunion show.

It claimed the potential value of the lawsuit was at least $300 million.

But Judge Harold Baer Jr. dismissed the case, citing a lack of evidence that the late King of Pop was in a binding agreement to perform.

Baer said that while there was a letter of intent between Jackson's manager, Frank DiLeo, and the company, there was no enforceable contract since neither Jackson nor any of the other participants in a reunion concert ever signed a contract.

Attorneys for Jackson's estate argued that if there was a breach in the contract, it by AllGood, who did not issue a payment to Jackson before a required deadline.

Baer ruled that since there was no evidence that AllGood suffered any substantial economic damage because of the failed concert, he did not believe any compensation should be awarded.

"This case never had any merit and the claim was frivolous from day one," Jackson's estate attorney Howard Weitzman said in a statement.

"Michael Jackson never agreed to participate in a concert promoted by AllGood as the judge clearly found in his opinion."
