A federal jury decided Wednesday that Rod Stewart should pay a Las Vegas casino $2 million plus interest for a canceled show in December 2000
British rocker Rod Stewart has gotten the order. A federal jury on Wednesday ordered the star to pay $2 million plus interest for canceling a Las Vegas concert, to be held at the Rio casino-resort on the Vegas Strip, five years ago after he had throat surgery.
"We felt it was only fair that if Mr. Stewart didn't perform the concert that he should give the money back," so said Jury foreman Stevan Jorgensen concerning the order. Kerry Garvis Wright, one of Stewart's lawyer said that the 60-year-old singer will appeal, while Steve Morris, a lawyer for the Las Vegas casino and parent company Harrah's Entertainment, said he was "delighted and relieved" by the verdict.
