Nugent v. Muskegon: Day 5

Representatives of the Muskegon Summer Celebration testified yesterday that it was their fear of protesters that led to their cancellation of Ted Nugent's appearance at their 2003 event.  According to the Muskegon Chronicle, Festival Executive Director Joe Austin testified that he had "grave concerns" about security if Nugent performed.  Various news media had reported that Nugent used racially offensive language in a radio interview; Nugent denies he did so.

Austin said that the Festival had tried to get a copy of the broadcast, but that it apparently did not exist, and since it was on a short deadline it chose to "withdraw its offer" before the written contract was signed.

Closing arguments in the trial are scheduled for today, and the case will go to the jury.
