Report: Former manager sues Vina Robles Amphitheatre for fraud
The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports former Vina Robles Amphitheatre general manager Tim Reed filed suit in San Luis Obispo Superior Court against the managing companies of the venue, alleging breach of fiduciary duty, breach of both written and oral contract, fraud, involuntary dissolution and unfair business practices. He is seeking an unspecified amount of punitive and compensatory damages, with interest, as well as recovery of attorneys’ fees.
Located on the grounds of Vina Robles Winery & Vineyards in Paso Robles, the hillside amphitheater is a 3,300-seat outdoor venue that has hosted wide-ranging acts from B.B. King to ZZ Top, Tony Bennett to Ziggy Marley, Tears for Fears to Rob Zombie.
On Friday, Vina Robles spokeswoman Simone Michel denied Reed’s claims in an email to The Tribune and said the venue’s legal counsel will respond to Reed’s specific allegations in a future court filing.
