Eminem's Management Problem
Highest Court Court of Appeals of Michigan
Year Ended 2009
Plaintiffs Music Manager(s)
Defendants Eminem
Other No Other parties on file
Short Description A music manager and promoter sued Eminem and assorted defendants, including the lesser-known rapper Swift, a close friend of Eminem, and D12, Em's group, for breach of contract and other related actions arising from Defendants severing their relationship with Plaintiff. Claims were dismissed as to Swift for Plaintiff's lack of any proper agent license, which was statutorily required for anyone booking bands for a living in Michigan, but not always needed for people providing career advice or helping artists in other capacities. Because Plaintiff's actions put him within the purpose of the statute, the contract claims were dismissed. (The contract's choice of law provision determining Georgia as the applicable law was not upheld, because Georgia had no relationship to the parties, relationship, or dispute.) Further, the unjust enrichment claims against D12 were also dismissed; because there was an actual contract, no actions for implied or quasi-contracts may stand. - LSW
