James dropped from lawsuit filed by Atlanta club

An Atlanta nightclub has dropped Miami Heat star LeBron James

from a lawsuit alleging he broke a commitment to appear at a party

later this month.

The Opera nightclub says ”the matter has been resolved,” and

it actually was ”misled” by someone who was not authorized to act

on James’ behalf.

The suit was filed Monday at Atlanta’s Fulton County Superior

Court, saying James canceled a March 17 appearance for which he was

supposed to be paid $25,000. The suit also names the owners of the

rival Gold Room nightclub.

Court papers say a representative for James accepted $15,500 in

advance payments from Opera, then notified the club that James

would appear at the Gold Room.
