LA Coliseum Commission to pay Insomniac approximately $400K in Legal Fees

Another slap in the face comes for the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, as it has been ordered to pay Insomniac, Inc. approximately $400,000 in attorney’s fees stemming from the Commission’s failed lawsuit against Insomniac and the company’s CEO, Pasquale Rotella.

The ongoing battle courtroom drama that stems back to 2011, has been a complete and utter disaster for the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission. Last August 30, Superior Court Judge Terry Green dismissed all claims made by the Commission against Insomniac and Mr. Rotella, finding that despite six attempts the Commission had still failed to plead a viable case. In the meantime Insomniac's event, Electric Daisy Carnival, which the Coliseum snubbed it's nose at, has reached unprecedented success at its new home in Las Vegas, and now this latest judgement puts the final nail in the coffin.

In response to Friday’s decision, Insomniac’s attorney, Gary Jay Kaufman, issued the following statement:

``We are very pleased that the Court awarded Insomniac the full amount of its attorneys’ fees. This is just further confirmation of what we have maintained from day one: this lawsuit was ill-conceived, politically motivated and publicity driven. Neither Insomniac nor Mr. Rotella did anything wrong and this lawsuit should never have been brought in the first place.”
