Madonna fans end lawsuit over late concerts; singer's lawyers threaten sanctions

Michael Fellows and Jason Alvarez did not say in a Brooklyn federal court filing on Wednesday why they voluntarily dismissed their proposed class action against Madonna and tour promoter Live Nation (LYV.N), opens new tab with prejudice, meaning it cannot be brought again.

In a separate filing on Wednesday, the defendants’ lawyer said the dismissal “was not the result of any settlement.”
Fellows and Alvarez alleged false advertising and negligent misrepresentation after Madonna, 65, began three December concerts on her “Celebration Tour” at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center after 10:30 p.m., though tickets promised an 8:30 p.m. start.
The plaintiffs said that because the concerts ended around 1 a.m. the next day, they had either to leave early or spend more to get home because of limited public transport and ride-sharing options, and see their plans for the next day disrupted.

Fellows and Alvarez, both of Brooklyn, said they would not have bought their tickets had they known about the late starts.
They said Taylor Swift and Bruce Springsteen, both promoted by Live Nation, start their concerts on time.
Jeff Warshafsky, the lawyer for Madonna and Live Nation, in a June 10 court hearing accused the plaintiffs of waging a harassment campaign aimed at “extorting” a big settlement.
