Nugent v. Muskegon: Day 3

The defense won a big victory Thursday in Ted Nugent's lawsuit against the Muskegon Summer Festival, as Judge Timothy Hicks ruled that the rocker can't claim damages based on work he lost because of the cancellation.  Muskegon canceled his appearance on grounds that he had used racially offensive language, a charge that testimony Wednesday suggested caused Nugent to become a "pariah" in the music world.

Hicks's ruling means that even if Nugent proves a breach, his damages will be limited to the $80,000 fee he would have earned, not the $1 million in lost earnings that resulted.
