No ADR for King of Pop

Michael Jackson has sued one of his former concert promoters, Marcel Avram and his German company, in a dispute related to Jackson backing out of two concerts on New Year's Eve 1999.  Avram previously sued Jackson over the breach of contract in Santa Barbara in November 2002, and a jury eventually determined that Jackson owed Avram $5.3 million.  The parties subsequently signed a settlement agreement to resolve all claims, but a dispute under the settlement agreement has apparently arisen and Avram had commenced arbitration.  Jackson's suit seeks injunctive relief to prevent arbitration, and instead resolve the differences in the Santa Barbara Superior Court.
