O’Brien obtains significant judgment against fraudulent music promoter

On March 7, 2014, a Bell County judge awarded O’Brien Law Firm client and retired veteran Michael Williams a summary judgment against Atlanta music promoter Brian Clay for more than $661,000, including $171,000 in attorney fees. In late 2011 and early 2012, Williams invested $263,500 in two concerts to be arranged and promoted by Clay that were to take place in Dallas, Texas and Fayetteville, North Carolina. Only one concert took place (The Isley Brothers in Dallas in February 2012), and Clay never provided Williams with the proceeds of the show, an accounting of how the money was applied or any other return in compliance with their contractual agreement. Williams sued for breach of contract and fraudulent inducement, and O’Brien used an Atlanta private investigator to track down the evasive defendant and serve him with the lawsuit. That case is Williams v. Brian A. Clay and HB Entertainment of Atlanta, LLC, Cause No. 257252 in the 169th District Court of Bell County.
