Rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have been handed a $280,000 lawsuit for reportedly not performing at a pre-booked venue in Washington last year.According to TMZ, the Grammy-winning crew have been sued by the Jazz of Tacoma basketball team who claim the crew breached their contract after the money was handed over for an April 2007 performance.
“The defendants breached the agreement by failing to show up and perform — [they] neither cancelled the engagement or returned any monies paid under the contract,” the lawsuit reads. “The plaintiff has since that time done everything in its power to settle this matter without any good faith response by the defendants.”
In addition to the $280K compensatory damages being requested, the team is also asking for attorney fees, declaratory and injunctive relief along with other compensation deemed by the court.
A rep for Bone Thugs N Harmony was unavailable at press time. No trial date has been announced as of today (December 10)
