Read the black Plaintiff's allegations raised more than a decade ago in their complaint to the Southern District of New York regarding the anti-competitive and discriminatory practices of the white defendant talent agencies and concert promoters spanning more than 30 years.

For example, in paragraph 88, it states: "In order to attempt to end the booking agency defendants’ practice of consistently refusing to contact or retain plaintiffs to promote concerts to be given by white acts and major black acts, plaintiffs have asked and demanded that the booking agency defendants, promoter defendants, and co-conspirators end their boycott and discrimination of black promoters and allow them the equal opportunity of promoting such concerts and participating in the bidding and contracting process. Such requests and demands have been made by plaintiffs, over many and on many occasions, individually, together, and through the BPA, both formally and informally, through letters, facsimiles, face-to-face meetings and telephone calls, to several of the booking agency defendants and the promoter defendants. The defendants and co-conspirators have refused to end the boycott of black promoters, and have failed to respond to plaintiffs’ requests. On occasion, certain booking agency defendants have dismissed plaintiffs’ demands by falsely representing their intention to offer certain concert promotion contracts to plaintiffs, knowing that they would never do so. On some occasions, certain defendants have even ridiculed plaintiffs’ demands, laughing in plaintiffs’ faces at the very suggestion of contracting with black promoters to promote concerts to be performed by white and major black artists."

Written by attorneys Martin Gold and Christine Lepera.
