The lawsuit of rock star Ted Nugent against a Muskegon, Michigan, music festival will go forward. A state court judge denied a motion to dismiss based on Nugent’s failure to turn over materials in discovery, and gave the rocker another chance to deliver.
The Muskegon Summer Celebration canceled Nugent’s performance last year after he reportedly used racially offensive terms during an interview on a Denver radio station. The controversial Nugent (left), whose God, Guns, and Rock and Roll was a New York Times best-seller, is not the sort to quietly fade away. He sued, alleging breach of contract, and is seeking $1.8 million in damages for disruption of his tour.
