the actions of The Agency Group and Andrew Goodfriend are exactly why we have the Deceptive Trade Practices Act in Texas.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 23, 2010
Todd Meagher and TODD Entertainment, LLC have sued The Agency Group and TKO President Andrew Goodfriend under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Act for fraud, negligence, false representations, breach of fiduciary duty, unconscionability and breach of implied warranties, seeking $20 million in damages. The suit alleges that Goodfriend, a talent agent for The Agency Group, charged commissions for numerous performances that he neither negotiated nor procured for TODD Entertainment’s artist, Josh Todd of Buckcherry.
Meagher’s attorney Buck McKinney of the Law Office of Buck McKinney, PC in Austin, Texas stated, “I’ve never seen a case where a talent agent has so blatantly led his clients down the primrose path. Essentially, Andrew Goodfriend lured my clients and others into doing his work for him, charged my clients for the services as if he had performed them, and then turned my clients in to the California Labor Commission for performing unlicensed talent agent’s services.”
Attorney James Key, with the law firm of Harris, Finley & Bogle, P.C. in Fort Worth, Texas, another firm representing Todd Entertainment, LLC stated, “the actions of The Agency Group and Andrew Goodfriend are exactly why we have the Deceptive Trade Practices Act in Texas.”
The lawsuit was filed in The District Court of Tarrant County, Texas (Cause Number: 067 248661 10) and can be viewed here: http://www.andrewgoodfriend.com.
