Outback Champions Series Tour Sues Charlotte Tennis Club
Published October 21, 2009
InsideOut Sports & Entertainment is suing The Palisades Country Club in Charlotte over "more than $350,000 in unpaid sponsorship fees" related to the company's Outback Champions Series tennis event at the club, according to Rick Bonnell of the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. InsideOut in a lawsuit filed in federal court Monday claims that the Palisades "failed to pay any of the $347,288" owed the company for running this year's event. The suit also claims the Palisades "owes $10,250 in unpaid fees" from the '08 tournament. Attorney Doug Hand, who is representing InsideOut, said that the company "wants to continue holding the tournament" at the Palisades. In addition to monetary damages, the lawsuit "asks the court to compel the Palisades to continue hosting the tournament the next two years, and pay $747,537 in contracted sponsorship fees." InsideOut has run an event at the Palisades each September since '06 and is contracted through '11 (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 10/21).
