Atlanta nightclub drops suit against LeBron James
An Atlanta nightclub has dismissed a lawsuit against Miami Heat
star LeBron James.
The Opera nightclub had filed a complaint Monday in Fulton
County Superior Court accusing James of canceling a March 17
appearance for which he was supposed to be paid $25,000. It also
accused the owners of the rival Gold Room nightclub in Atlanta of
instead arranging a visit there.
Opera nightclub attorney Yasha Heidari said Thursday that his
client has dropped claims against both. He would not disclose the
terms of the settlement, but he said Opera looks forward to a James
appearance in the future.
Heidari said the nightclub was misled by a promoter who acted
without authority from the NBA star.
