Max Sneyd and Danielle Kus recently represented an event venue against Plaintiffs that had signed a contract for their event to take place at the client’s venue.
The plaintiffs twice rescheduled their event and then eventually canceled for their own convenience. Though the plaintiffs signed a booking contract clearly stating that deposits were non-refundable for voluntary cancellations, the plaintiffs sued for recovery of the deposit, plus costs, fees and punitive damages. Both parties filed Motions for Summary Judgment, with Mr. Sneyd and Ms. Kus arguing that the court should enforce the parties’ contract as written. The trial court, adopting Kerr Russell’s arguments, denied the plaintiffs’ Motion for Summary Judgment and granted Kerr Russell’s Motion for Summary Judgment, thereby dismissing the entirety of the plaintiffs’ case against the event venue.
