    Coremodels wrote I had never seen the “diversity” jurisdiction thing, so looked it up. I’m trying to figure out how it applies, unless this JB Multimedia is out of state…but who the hell are they anyways?!?

    I’ll venture into law-nerdery for a moment.

    If even one party on both sides of this complaint is an Ohio citizen, it actually could not have been filed in federal court. That means that if even one plaintiff and one defendant–including corporate persons–are from Ohio, it should have been confined to state court. This is called the “complete diversity” requirement. Since both BOMA and Corso & Gallichio are Ohio persons, it needed to be filed in state court.

    However … it actually was. The case was actually originally filed in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas (08 cvh 56689). It was removed to federal court on June 27. By that time, Corso, Gallichio, and Corso and Gallichio Ventures LLC has all been dropped from the suit (they were dropped on May 28th). I presume that means that there were only out-of-state defendants left: Disco Productions and “Disco Donnie.” Disco Productions is a Louisiana corporation. No clue w/r/t “Disco Donnie,” but I guess he’s not from around here.

    Last, but certainly not least: the case has already been dismissed. BOMA & co. voluntarily dismissed their own complaint on July 7. The dismissal was without prejudice, so they could refile later. No responsive pleadings were ever filed, so we’ll never know how Disco Productions and Disco Donnie might have responded (unless, of course, this comes back).

    Anyway, for those still awake after my somewhat discombobulated civil procedure lesson, the actual counts in the complaint were tortious interference with a prospective business relationship and tortious interference with contract.

    I remember … he actually has a thread where he just updates the first post all the time with new Disco events. I think I ended up on one of his e-mail lists somehow, too … probably something I unknowingly signed up for when I bought my ticket to Armin @ Sugar off groovetickets, since he seems to have some kind of relationship with that site.

    Actually, a really fascinating back story on Donnie Disco (including a movie):

    Good to hear this is done, and hopefully over!

    I used to work with Mike G back in the day, pre-bar owner etc. I wish him all the luck in the world. He’s a good guy! Awesome DJ as well.

    Dunno how this managed to get overlooked, but is from three weeks ago in Business First:

    Business First wrote Bar fight breaks out over DJ shows

    Friday, July 4, 2008

    by Doug Buchanan

    Sugar and Spice are anything but nice to the folks at the Bar of Modern Art. The high-profile bars are fighting in court over, of all things, disc jockey bookings.

    The Bar of Modern Art is claiming in a Franklin County Common Pleas Court lawsuit that the Spice Bar, Sugar Bar and its agents have been responsible for show cancellations at the East Broad Street nightspot, and continue to bad-mouth the bar with national DJ booking agencies.

    According to the lawsuit, Aaron Miller, who booked DJ events for Bar of Modern Art, got disc jockey Richard Vission for a show this year through AM Only Inc., a New York-based agency that represents DJs from across the country.

    But defendants Chris Corso and Mike Gallicchio, owners of the Sugar and Spice bars and the Park Street Patio, and booking agent James Estopinal, aka Disco Donnie, got the show canceled, the suit says, and Vission appeared at Sugar Bar the week after he was to have performed at the Bar of Modern Art.
