INTRODUCTION

1.

DelVecchio goes by the name "DJ Pauly D" on a widely popular MTV reality

3
4 5

television show entitled Jersey Shore (the "Jersey Shore"). DelVecchio asked ICM torepresent

him after the first season ofthe Jersey Shore when MTV refused to compensate him despite the

virtually overnight success ofthe show. ICM went to bat for DelVecchio, successfully

6
7 8 9 10 11

negotiating lucrative amendments to DelVecchio's participation agreement with MTV. Because
ofICM's efforts, DelVecchio, through his loan out company Blowout, earns asubstantial sum for

each season ofJersey Shore and has endorsement deals and side-projects based on his DJ Pauly D
persona.

2.

No good deed goes unpunished, however, and DelVecchio ultimately terminated

the representation. Now, DelVecchio and Blowout refuse to pay ICM nearly $400,000 in
commissions on amounts Defendants have already received. Defendants have also unequivocally

12

13
14 15 16
17

announced that they have no intention ofpaying ICM over $200,000 in commissions on future

money DelVecchio and Blowout are set to earn from Jersey Shore despite their contractual
obligation to do so.

3.

ICM attempted to resolve the matter informally, but DelVecchio refused to even

acknowledge the contractual obligations binding him and his loan out company. Accordingly,
ICM was left with no choice but to file this lawsuit. By this complaint, ICM seeks to hold

18 19
20 21 22

Defendants liable for their purposeful and intentional breach oftheir talent agency agreement with

ICM. ICM seeks judicial intervention to help the agency collect commissions on the hundreds of
thousands of dollars that Defendants have already earned onJersey Shore. ICM further seeks a

judicial declaration that itis entitled to commissions on substantial sums in excess of$200,000 to
be paid to Defendants as a result ofICM's hard work and dedication to Defendants' career.
PRELIMINARY ALLEGATIONS

23
24 25

4.

ICM is, and at all times material hereto has been, a corporation duly organized and

26
27
\

operating under the laws of the State ofDelaware, with its principal place ofbusiness located in
the County ofLos Angeles, State ofCalifornia. ICM is, and at all times relevant hereto was,
licensed as a talent agency by the Labor Commissioner of the State ofCalifornia.

COMPLAINT

5.

Upon information and belief, ICM alleges that at all times material hereto,

2 3
4
5

DelVecchio has been an "artist" as that term is defined in Section 1700.4(b) of the California

Labor Code. DelVecchio is an actor regularly working in the entertainment industry and,

accordingly, has entered into numerous contracts in the County of Los Angeles, California, including a contract with MTV. DelVecchio is and has been represented by entertainment
counsel, business managers and agents whose offices are located in Los Angeles,

6

7
8 9

California. These lawyers, agents and business managers regularly conduct business onhis
behalf in the County of Los Angeles, California. Moreover, upon information and belief,

ICM alleges that DelVecchio performs DJ services and other music related performances in
the County of Los Angeles, State of California

10 11
12 13 14 15

6.

Upon information and belief, ICM alleges that Blowout is a Rhode Island limited

liability corporation which, at all relevant times, was authorized to do business in the State of
California. At all times material hereto, Blowout has been DelVecchio's personal services

corporation, loaning out DelVecchio's services as anactor in the entertainment industry.
7. The true names and capacities, whether individual, corporate, associate or
otherwise of the defendants named herein as Does 1 through 50, inclusive, are unknown to ICM

16 17
18

which therefore sues said defendants by such fictitious names. ICM alleges on information and
belief that each of thedefendants, including those designated as a Doe, are responsible for the

19
20

events alleged herein and the damages caused thereby asa principal, agent, co-conspirator or
aider and abettor. ICM will seek leave of Court to amend this Complaint to allege the true

21
22

names and capacities of such defendants when the same have been ascertained.

8.

Upon information and belief, ICM alleges that Defendants and Does 1-50 atall

23
24

times relative to this action, were the agents, servants, partners, jointventurers and employees
of each of the other Defendantsand Does 1-50 and, in doing the acts alleged herein, were acting

25
26

with the knowledge and consent ofeach ofthe other Defendants and Does 1-50 in this action.
9. This Court hasjurisdiction over all Defendants becauseon information and

27
28

belief, Defendants have entered into numerous contracts in thisforum, regularly conduct
business in this forum, have performed several concerts in this forum and have hired agents,
3
COMPLAINT

1
2

managers and other representatives with offices in this forum. Moreover, Defendants' payment

for services is processed in this forum. Thus, Defendants have sufficient minimum contacts in
California and otherwise intentionally avail themselves ofthe California market so as to render

3
4
5

the exercise ofjurisdiction over them by the California courts consistent with traditional notions
of fair play and substantialjustice.

6

10.

This Court is the proper court for trial ofthis matter because the agreement which

7
8 9

is the subject ofthis action was entered into in Los Angeles County, California. The parties'
obligations under the agreement were incurred and to be performed in Los Angeles County,
California.

GENERAL ALLEGATIONS COMMON TO ALL COUNTS
The Agent/Performer Agreements

11.

In or about January 2010, Defendants engaged ICM to serve as DelVecchio's

talent agency. Initially, Defendants operated under an oral agency agreement with ICM
from January 2010 through July 2010. In late July 2010, ICM and Defendants entered into
ICM's written standard "General Services Agreement" (the "Agency Agreement"). The

15

16
17

Agency Agreement clearly set forth the terms, conditions and obligations ofthe parties.
12. Paragraphs 4 and 5 of the Agency Agreement states:

18

19
20
21

4. I [Defendants] agree to pay you [ICM] ten percent (10%) of the gross compensation earned or received by me for, or in connection with, (i) any contracts for, or engagements of, my services (collectively and individually
hereinafter sometimes referred to as "employment") now in existence, except

to such extent that I may be obligated to pay commission on such contracts to

22

another agent, or contracts entered into or negotiated for during the term, including, but not limited to, all gross compensation therefrom, and payments thereon, that are earned or received by me, or become due or payable to me after the expiration of the term, and (ii) for, or in connection with all
modifications, renewals, additions, substitutions, supplements, replacements, or extensions of or to such contracts and engagements, whether negotiated

You shall continue to perform your obligations hereunder after the term with respect to all employment with respect to which you are entitled to your commission as provided in the immediately preceding sentence. "Gross compensation" includes all forms of compensation, money, things ofvalue orother emoluments (including, but not
limited to, salaries, earnings, fees, residuals, royalties, bonuses, gifts,

monetary and non-monetary consideration, securities and shares of profits or gross receipts) received by me orany person, firm orcorporation, partnership,

(hereinafter "my firm") or in which I may have any right, title or interest, on my behalf, from such contracts or engagements and modifications, renewals, additions, substitutions, supplements, replacements, and extensions of or to
such contracts or engagements, whether or not procured by you or by anyone else as well as from any form of advertising, or commercial tie-ups or
infomercials using my name, likeness, or voice.

5

5. In the event that my firm, if any, has or hereafter during the term
6
7 8

acquires, directly orindirectly, any right respecting my services in any of
the fields covered by this Agreement, then promptly following your

request to do so, I shall cause my firm to enter into a written exclusive agency agreement with you with respect to such services upon all of the
terms and conditions herein contained, specifically including an

9 10 11
12

agreement by my firm to pay compensation to you as herein provided in
Paragraph 4, based upon the gross compensation paid and/or payable to

my firm, directly or indirectly, for furnishing my services. For the purposes ofthis Paragraph 5, the term "gross compensation" shall be deemed
to include gross compensation paid and/or payable tomy firm ifit would have been gross compensation pursuant to Paragraph 4 if paid or payable to me.
Notwithstanding the fact that my firm may enter into such agency agreement

13 14
15

with you, I shall in all events remain primarily liable, jointly and severally with my firm, to pay compensation to you as provided in Paragraph 4 above,
based on the gross compensation paid and/or payable to my firm, directly or indirectly, for furnishing my services; and I shall indemnify you against a

16
17 18

failure ofmy firm to execute said agency agreement, or, if ithas executed said agency agreement, any failure of my firm to pay commissions pursuant thereto or otherwise to comply with the provisions thereof, and hold you harmless from any loss, cost, or expense incurred by you as a result of said failure. No waiver, extension, change, or amendment with respect to said agency agreement, nor failure for any reason to execute same, shall be deemed
to release me of or from any liability hereunder.

19
20 21

the terms of the Agency Agreement, Defendants became obligated to pay ICM a

22 23

27 28

commission equal to ten percent (10%) ofthe gross compensation earned or received by
DelVecchio or on his behalf by any business, including, but not limited to, loan-out

companies such as Blowout inconnection with any contracts for, orengagements of,
DelVecchio's services, in existence at the time of the Agency Agreement (except to the
extentsuch commissions were already owedto anotheragency), or entered into or

13.

On or about June 22,2009, prior to engaging ICM's services, Defendants

entered into a certain Participant Agreement (the "ParticipantAgreement") with MTV in
connection with the MTV television series JerseyShore ("Jersey Shore"), under which

8 9

Defendants rendered talent services on Jersey Shore. The first season of Jersey Shore
achieved an unprecedented level of television ratings success on MTV. 14. On or about January 29, 2010, during ICM's representation of Defendants,

10
11

ICM successfully procured an amendment to the Participant Agreement (the "First

12 13
14 15

Amendment to Participant Agreement") in which Defendants' overall compensation was

increased and options for Defendants' services on cycles 2 and 3 of Jersey Shore were
granted to MTV.

15.

On or about April 14, 2010, attorneys for MTV sent a notice to Defendants

16
17

and ICM that the second cycle option ("Cycle 2") for Jersey Shore was beingexercised by
MTV pursuant to the First Amendment to Participant Agreement. ICM is informed and

18 19
20
21

believes, and thereupon alleges, thatCycle 2 for Jersey Shore was a twenty-four (24) episode order thatwas ultimately divided into twoseparate seasons of Jersey Shore by
MTV, which were categorized as Cycle 2A and Cycle 2B by MTV. Cycle 2A was filmed

in Miami, Florida and Cycle 2B was filmed in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
16. Pursuant to the terms of the Agency Agreement with ICM, Defendants remitted

22 23
24

10% commission on all compensation received pursuant to the First Amendment to
Participant Agreement to ICM, includingall compensation received in connection with

25

Cycle 2A and Cycle 2B of Jersey Shore. Both Cycle 2A and Cycle 2B each produced
tremendous television ratings for MTV.

Shore. On or about July 20,2010, during ICM's representation of Defendants, ICM

successfully procured a second amendment to the Participant Agreement (the"Second
Amendment to Participant Agreement"), in which Defendants' overall compensation was increased, including a retroactive episodic increase for Cycle 2B, and options for

5 6

Defendants' services on cycles 3 and 4 ofJersey Shore were granted to MTV. Pursuant to the
third paragraph of the Second Amendment to Participant Agreement, Cycle2A was re-

categorized as Cycle 2 and Cycle 2B was re-categorized as Cycle 3 of Jersey Shore (which had
already filmed and aired).

Pursuant to the terms of the Agency Agreement with ICM, Defendantsremitted

On or about January 26, 2011, attorneys for MTV sent a notice to Defendants

13
14 15

and ICM that the fourth cycle option ("Cycle 4") for Jersey Shore was being exercised by
MTV pursuant to the Second Amendment to Participant Agreement.

20.

Again taking advantage of the huge ratings success of Jersey Shore, in or around

16 17 18 19 20
21
22

April 2011, during ICM's representation of Defendants and before filming on Cycle 4 began,

ICM began and managed to successfully negotiate another improved amendment for Defendants to provide services onadditional seasons ofJersey Shore, which was entered into and effective
as of March 31, 2011 (the "ThirdAmendment to Participant Agreement"). The Third

Amendment to Participant Agreement provided for a significant compensation increase to

Defendants beginning with Cycle 4 of Jersey Shore andalso contained options for Defendants'
services on cycles 5 and 6 of Jersey Shore.

entitled to a $400,000 signing bonus and $100,000 per episode for the first twelve (12) episodes of Cycle 4 of Jersey Shore. ICM is informed and believes, and thereupon alleges, that 12

episodes, a launch special, multiple "after-shows" and a reunion show of Cycle 4 of Jersey
Shore were produced. Therefore, Defendants were entitled to $1,600,000 plus additional
7 COMPLAINT

28

1 2 3

compensation, including but not limited to"after-shows," a launch special, a reunion show, participations, merchandising and bonuses pursuant to the Third Amendment to Participant
Agreement for Cycle 4. ICM is informed and believes, and thereupon alleges, that Defendants
also received a total of $107,037.33 in gross compensation representing contractual

5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12

participations and $200,000 in gross compensation as a "thank you" bonus on Cycle 4 ofJersey
Shore, bringing Defendants' known total gross compensation onCycle 4 ofJersey Shore to

$1,907,037.33. Accordingly, at a 10% commission rate, ICM is entitled to a minimum of

$190,703.73 plus 10% commission on any other compensation received by Defendants from

Cycle 4 ofJersey Shore, including but not limited to "after-shows," a launch special, a reunion
show, other participations, merchandising and bonuses pursuant to the Third Amendment to

Participant Agreement. To date, Defendants have failed to remit any commission inconnection
with Cycle 4 of Jersey Shore to ICM. Defendants Are Required to Pay Post-Termination Commissions on ICM-Negotiated Deals

13

14
15

22.

On or about May 5,2011, Defendants discharged ICM as their talent agency.

ICM acknowledged its discharge and confirmed that, pursuant to the written Agency Agreement

16
17

and custom and practice in the entertainment industry, Defendants remained contractually

obligated to pay ICM a commission on all gross compensation Defendants would receive in the
future onany deals negotiated before Defendants' discharge of ICM, including but not limited to
Defendants' Third Amendment to Participant Agreement for Jersey Shore (with an effective
date of March 31,2011 — clearly before Defendants' discharge of ICM on or about May 5,

18 19 20
21 22

2011). Indeed, it is standard custom and practice in the entertainment industry that talent

agencies are entitled to post-termination commissions on all deals they negotiate for their client.
See The Stein Agency v. James Tripp-Haith (Cal. Labor Comm'n 2006) (enforcing oral agreement for post-termination commissions as to options exercised well after end of agency
relationship); The Endeavor Agency, LLC v. Milano, TAC 10-05 (Cal. Labor Comm'n 2005)

ICM that the fifth cycle option ("Cycle 5") for Jersey Shore was beingexercised by MTV
pursuant to the Third Amendmentto Participant Agreement.

24.

Pursuant to the Third Amendment to Participant Agreement, Defendants were

entitled to $150,000 per episode for the first twelve (12) episodes of Cycle 5 of Jersey Shore. ICM is informed and believes, and thereupon alleges, that 12 episodes, multiple "after-shows"

8
9 10 11

and reunion shows of Cycle 5 were produced. Cycle 5 is currently airing on MTV. If 12

episodes, multiple "after-shows" and reunion shows of Cycle 5 were in fact produced, Defendants would be entitled to $1,800,000 plus additional compensation, including butnot limited to "after-shows," reunion shows, participations, merchandising and bonuses pursuant to
the ThirdAmendment to Participant Agreement. Accordingly, at a 10% commission rate, ICM would be entitled to a minimum of $180,000 plus 10% commission on any othercompensation
received by Defendants from Cycle 5 of Jersey Shore, including but not limited to "aftershows,"reunion shows, participations, merchandising and bonuses pursuantto the Third

2012, MTV decided to exercise the sixth cycle option ("Cycle 6") for Jersey Shore pursuant to the

3
4

services rendered by ICM as the agent with respect to the Third Amendment to Participant

Agreement as herein described, and for which Defendants, and each of them, promised to pay
Plaintiff the reasonable value thereof. Defendants, and each of them, knew that these services

5

6
7

were being provided and accepted, used, and enjoyed the services provided by ICM. 44. Defendants knew that ICM was providing talent agency services to Defendants

8 9
10
11

and on Defendants' behalfand, accordingly become indebted to ICM for the reasonable value of
said talent agency services.

45.

Defendants accepted, used and enjoyed and continue to enjoy, the benefits of the

talent agency servicesprovided by ICM. Though Defendants initially paid ICM commissions for compensation received pursuant to the Agency Agreement as a result of the talent agency services that they accepted, used and enjoyed, Defendants have failed and refused to fully

12

13
14 15

compensate ICM for the full value of the talent agency services employed by ICM. Defendants
have not paid the commissions from the gross compensation received by Defendants pursuant to Cycle 4 and Cycle 5 of Jersey Shore and refuseto pay commissions from future gross

16
17 18

compensation to be received by Defendants pursuant to Cycle 6 of JerseyShore arising out of
the Third Amendment to Participant Agreement, although demand therefore has been made.
46. The fair and reasonable value of commissions now past-due and owing by

19

20
21
22

Defendants to ICM relating to its talent agency services is ten percent (10%) of the gross

compensation earned or received by DelVecchio or on his behalf by any business,
including, but not limited to, loan-out companies such as Blowout. 47. As a direct result of Defendants' failure and refusal to pay ICM for its work, labor

23
24

and services rendered, ICM has been damaged in an amount according to proof at hearing, \but in any event not less than $370,703.73, together with interest thereon at the legal rate from the

paragraphs numbers 1 through 51 of this Complaint as if set forth fully herein.
53. ICM contends that Defendants are contractually obligated to pay ICM a 10%

commission on all gross compensationDefendants will receive as a result of any and all deals

that were negotiated by ICM on Defendants' behalf before Defendants' discharge of ICM. This

22
23

includes, but is not limited to, any future compensation Defendants receive under the Third
Amendment to Participant Agreement (with an effective date of March 31,2011 — clearly
before Defendants' discharge of ICM on or about May 5,2011), such as Cycle 6.
54. Defendants contend that they do not and will not owe ICM such commissions.

24
25
26

55.

Accordingly, an actual controversy has arisen and now exists between ICM, and

27
