Rod Stewart Ordered to Pay $3M for Cancelled Show



A federal judge has ordered Rod Stewart to pay Harrah's Entertainment, a Las Vegas casino, more than $3 million for a canceled show in December 2000

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks has on Monday March 6th, 2006 ordered Rod Stewart to pay Harrah's Entertainment Inc., the world's largest gambling company, more than $3 million for a cancelled show in December 2000.

The ruling stems from a finding by a jury late last year that Stewart should return the $2 million the Rio Hotel and Casino paid him to appear Dec. 30, 2000. As for everybody to know, the British singer bowed out before the gig, saying he was still recovering from throat surgery for thyroid cancer several months prior to the date.

Thus, in addition to the $3 million compensation, Stewart's lawyer also was ordered to pay an additional $153,483 in contempt-of-court sanctions and legal costs for failing to turn over information to lawyers for Harrah's Entertainment before trial last year. Refused to comment on the charges, the singer's lawyer Louis Miller told reporters that his client planned to appeal the verdict and jury award.
