Comic Sued by Manager

Actor/comedian Dave Chappelle has been sued by his ex-manager, who claims Chappelle owes him more than $800,000 in fees for jobs the manager negotiated.  The Smoking Gun has a copy of the complaint here.

United Press International, which has only the vaguest idea of the rules of evidence and the statute of frauds, says that the manager has "no proof" of his claim, since the agreement wasn't reduced to writing.
