Nugent wins breach of contract case

A Michigan jury has awarded Ted Nugent $100,000 for breach of contract in his dispute with a Muskegon, Michigan festival.

Jurors were out only 90 minutes before returning with a finding that the Muskegon Summer Celebration had an oral contract with Nugent, and that when it canceled his appearance because of fear of protesters it breached that deal.  The damages amount included Nugent's $80,000 appearance fee, plus an estimated $20,000 he would have received from sales of albums and merchandise at the festival.  The judge had previously ruled that he could not get consequential damages for his loss to reputation.

Both sides are considering whether to appeal.
