When people and/or businesses enter into contracts those agreements are legal and binding. Anytime someone in the Miami area fails to live up to his or her part of such an agreement he or she could be held liable for any damages to the other party involved in the contract.
Paulina Rubio is in a breach of contract battle with a Miami Businessman and the government of the Columbian city of Tunja after the Mexican singer failed to show up for a scheduled concert in Columbia. The Mixed Fund of Culture of Boyacá, Viva La Música and the company Miami Entertainment CMC have filed the lawsuit. Miami court authorities have demanded that the singer return to Florida in order to complete the process.
According to reports, Ms. Rubio’s attorney claims that she requested a plane in order to be transported while in Columbia. However, her attorney claims that the singer’s staff had to cover those expenses because the Miami companies and the Columbia government didn’t fulfill this part of the contract. Her lawyer also claims that she didn’t make the concert because she was not allowed to land in Tunja. The plaintiffs, on the other hand, claim that the agreement called for her to arrive to Columbia by plane, and then be transported by car upon her arrival.
If the judge rules in favor of the plaintiffs, then Ms. Rubio would be accountable for the legal expenses and interests for the concert she missed. According to reports that could be more than a million dollars. Anytime someone is facing a contract dispute, he or she should probably seek the help of an experienced business litigation attorney.
