Atlanta nightclub drops LeBron from lawsuit


Posted Mar 10 2011 7:13PM

MIAMI (AP) -- An Atlanta nightclub has dropped Miami Heat star LeBron James from a lawsuit alleging he broke a commitment to appear at a party later this month.

The Opera nightclub says "the matter has been resolved," and it actually was "misled" by someone who was not authorized to act on James' behalf.

The suit was filed Monday at Atlanta's Fulton County Superior Court, saying James canceled a March 17 appearance for which he was supposed to be paid $25,000. The suit also names the owners of the rival Gold Room nightclub.

Court papers say a representative for James accepted $15,500 in advance payments from Opera, then notified the club that James would appear at the Gold Room.
