Los Angeles – Last week, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission was ordered to pay Insomniac, Inc. approximately $400,000 in attorney’s fees stemming from the Commission’s failed lawsuit against Insomniac and the company’s CEO, Pasquale Rotella.

Last August 30, Superior Court Judge Terry Green dismissed all claims made by the Commission against Insomniac and Mr. Rotella, finding that despite six attempts the Commission had still failed to plead a viable case. Subsequent to the August ruling, Insomniac filed a motion to collect the attorneys’ fees that it incurred in defeating the Commission’s claims.

In response to Friday’s decision, Insomniac’s attorney, Gary Jay Kaufman, issued the following statement:

“We are very pleased that the Court awarded Insomniac the full amount of its attorneys’ fees.  This is just further confirmation of what we have maintained from day one: this lawsuit was ill-conceived, politically motivated and publicity driven. Neither Insomniac nor Mr. Rotella did anything wrong and this lawsuit should never have been brought in the first place.”
