Parties in concert lawsuit reach settlement agreement

THE parties in a lawsuit over a canceled UB40 concert have asked the federal court to dismiss the case after  reaching a settlement agreement with confidential terms.

Steven Brownstein, concert promoter, and Jason H. Aldan, the defendant, have filed a stipulation for dismissal of the civil action in the District Court for the NMI.

 According to the stipulation, the court retains jurisdiction solely to enforce the confidential settlement agreement.

Brownstein, who owns the Steven Brownstein Entertainment, sued Aldan and other individuals, claiming they defrauded him of $115,000 by misrepresenting that they could bring the English reggae and pop band UB40 to perform on Guam and Saipan in 2015.

Brownstein is represented by attorney Steven P. Pixley while Aldan is represented by the law office of Robert T. Torres. Aldan has denied the allegation.

At a hearing following a settlement conference on Thursday, Pixley informed the court that they had reached a monetary settlement amount to be paid on Monday,  Jan. 14, 2019.

Pixley said the parties will work out the terms in a written agreement wherein the settlement amount will remain confidential.
