Michael Jackson is suing German concert promoter Marcel Avram for breach of contract. The controversial pop star, who filed the lawsuit against Avram's German-based company Mama Concerts, is also seeking a preliminary injunction to prevent Avram from proceeding with arbitration. Three years ago, Avram brought a lawsuit against Jackson, accusing him of backing out of two concerts in Munich in 1999. In March 2003, the court ruled that Jackson award Avram 4.4 million euros ($5.3 million). Both parties reached a settlement over existing and future claims related to the concerts, while disputes regarding the settlement were to be resolved in Superior Court as a part of the settlement agreement. But Avram has already scheduled an arbitration hearing for late October, and Jackson seeking an injunction to prevent any alternative forms of dispute resolution.
