Actor Bergen Is Sued For AIDS Video And Damage to Fundraiser Blamed on Elton John

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 21 – MZA Events sued Erich Bergen for his "attempt to detail a high profile charity event" involving Elton John and David Furnish called AIDS Walk: Live at Home.      

    On October 21 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Denise L. Cote held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  Counsel for Erich Bergen called the lawsuit abusive. He said his client is an actor without many resources, and that MZA is asking for hundreds of thousands of dollars they claim they might have made if the event scheduled for May 16, 2021 had gone forward with the video Bergen promised.

  Plaintiff's counsel said this wasn't the time to litigate the merits. Judge Cote mentioned SDNY Magistrate Stewart D. Aaron.

 The joint proposed pre-trial order submitted says depositions shall be completed by January 26, 2022.

The case is MZA Events, Inc. v. Bergen et al., 21-cv-4460 (Cote)
