Eight Acts Sue City Stages Management
By Associated Press
Birmingham, AL – Eight music acts are suing the former president of Birmingham's City Stages festival for payment for performances during the 2009 event.
A lawsuit filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court says acts such as the Doobie Brothers, the Neville Brothers and the Indigo Girls received bad checks from the Birmingham Cultural & Heritage Foundation, City Stages' parent company, after their performances at the festival in June.
Attorneys for the plaintiffs say $167,800 is involved. The lawsuit says all the checks were signed by former president George McMillan all bounced at Birmingham's Renasant Bank.
McMillan denied any wrongdoing in his answer to the complaint, filed in the circuit court.
