Corwin Law Firm Files Class Action Lawsuit against Event Entertainment Group, City of Miami over COVID Cancellation of the 2020 Ultra Music Festival
MIAMI, April 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Corwin Law, a consumer rights law firm based in Boca Ratonhas filed a class action lawsuit against Event Entertainment Group and the City of Miami on behalf of Florida Residents who bought tickets for the 2020 Ultra Music Festival that was supposed to take place March, 20th – 22, 2020 at Bayfront Park in Miami Beach.
Lawyer Marcus W. Corwin stated that the 2020 festival cancellation was disguised as a postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the promise of an expanded package of benefits for the 2021 festival for ticket buyers in lieu of refunds. After the 2021 event was canceled, the event organizers reached out to ticket holders again to make further promises but still no refund.
“It is completely irresponsible for the organizers to withhold refunds for more than two years, and for the City of Miami with no guarantee that this event can take place in 2022 or 2023, “Corwin said.
“This is an abuse of fairness and accepted and proper trading practice,” Corwin continued. “Nobody argues that the festival should have continued, but if it didn’t, the organizers should have refunded the money. If ticket holders want to attend the festival, they can choose and pay on their own terms.” “
After the class action lawsuit with eight counts filed in the Eleventh Judicial District in Miami-Dade County, “Ultra engages in intangible, unfair, and / or misleading trading practices by promoting, offering, and promoting the festival, taking the money from individuals to attend the advertised festival, canceling the festival, and then not allowing ticket buyers to receive it a refund, effectively shifting all of the risks and costs of Ultra’s decision to cancel the event to consumers. “
Gabriella PetrokaThe class representative stated, “As a longtime loyal participant, I am grateful to Ultra for making many amazing memories possible, and I hope Ultra will last for many years to come. However, I also hope Ultra will do the same.” Please consumers by giving us the choice of getting refunds and our own choice of how to use that money and whether or not to attend future events as I believe that, given the indescribable duration, that is the only thing fair result is this ‘shift’. “
Corwin, who has been practicing since 1986, has successfully fought Madonna, Live Nation, AT&T, Comcast, HBO and others, validating the offer to replace old tickets with new tickets for dates that were not confirmed as “totally unacceptable” .
The Corwin lawsuit is filing # 124094995 with the Miami-Dade County, Florida Circuit Civil Division.
