Jabbawockeez claim manager secretly raised his commission

Business relationships can be difficult on their own, but especially so when money is involved. It frequently compels individuals to act unlawfully in order to gain larger shares or higher commissions. When that occurs, the interested parties should strive to protect their investments, and sometimes the best way to do so is to file a business litigation lawsuit under the direction of a trusted attorney.

Recently, the popular dance troupe, Jabbawockeez, filed a lawsuit against their manager for breach of contract as well as breach of fiduciary duty. The group gained national attention after winning a dance competition hosted on MTV, and moved their act to Las Vegas. As a result of their success, they started up at least five associated companies and hired the brother of a former dance member to manage the group.

According to the lawsuit, which was also filed against the manager’s business, the plaintiffs assert that their manager progressively raised his commissions under his own direction and presumably without the knowledge of any of the dance group members. As it appears, the Jabbawockeez aren’t interested in firing their manager, they are simply concerned with seeking damages as a result of what was allegedly taken from them. They believe that this improper behavior took place over the span of ten years as the manager raised his commissions from 1 percent up to more than 50 percent, likely by amending the articles of incorporation. It is unknown how much money the manager allegedly fraudulently took from the troupe.
