The Promoters of White In The Moonlight (WITM) could face a lawsuit.
Informed sources told THE NEW TODAY newspaper that a female lawyer has drafted the lawsuit for filing in the Supreme Court Registry that can affect the White In The Moonlight show due to be held on August 8.
A source familiar with the pending court case said that the legal action is related to an alleged infringement of the copyrights act of the Eastern Caribbean organisation.
He said that the allegation is that the WITM outfit used certain music from a prominent Caribbean artiste to promote their show and did not pay any royalty.
He spoke of the Government of Grenada being a possible party to the lawsuit on the grounds that it rented Progress Park to the promoters of the show and helped to facilitate the breaking of the law.
Speculation is rife that the lawsuit will be filed close to the staging of the show in order to force the promoters “to come around the table” and negotiate a settlement of the issue.
The main promoter of WITM is said to be New York-based Nimrod Ollivierre who is a policeman by profession.
THE NEW TODAY understands that Ollivierre is due to fly into the country today (Friday) to intensify the promotion on the ground for the show.
Last year, WITM Promoters were locked in a court battle with the organisers of another show staged on the same day – Pure White – which involved Diego Peters and Angus Steele, the former head of Lime operations in Grenada.
The case ended in favour of Pure White with WITM being asked to pay costs.
