David Copperfield’s company has filed a law suit over what they describe as faulty work on DC’s private island Musha Cay.
This according to Vegas Inc.
Splashes was hired to work on features called the Secret Village Entryway or the Village Tunnel Entryway, but the features it installed “have proven defective,” and Splashes has failed to correct the problems, the suit says.
There also seems to be a dispute with one particular employee.
The suit also claims Splashes principal Robert North went to work for Copperfield’s company, that Copperfield’s company built a workshop for him called an illusion factory and that North then walked off the job in April after 13 months of work.
The suit seeks an injunction barring North from working for competing magicians during the balance of his three-year employment agreement with Copperfield’s company.
It also seeks a court order confirming that North is required not to disclose trade secrets.
Copperfield’s suit claims that North breached an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing in part by “forming business alliances or relationships for his sole benefit (to plaintiff‘s exclusion) with other competing magicians while still on the payroll of plaintiff.”
More on this as it develops.
