TNA Responds to Audience of One Productions Lawsuit, Denies Owing Money

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HE3Vj6IgYs

Last Thursday, November 3rd, both Impact Ventures (TNA’s parent company) and chief financial officer Dean Broadhead both filed responses to Audience of One Productions’ lawsuit for non-payment of money owed for work on Bound For Gloru 2015. Here are the key defenses:

  • It’s claimed that “The Complaint fails to state a cause of action against TNA upon which relief can be granted.” Wasn’t Audience of One asking to be paid in full?
  • TNA asserts that “the Complaint must be dismissed to the extent Plaintiff has failed to mitigate its alleged damages.” The implication is seemingly that Audience of One didn’t try to collect, similar to the claim that Billy Corgan did not ask for re-payment of his loan.

As far as direct responses to the text of the complaint go:

  • “TNA admits that Plaintiff sent a final invoice in the amount of $288,930.04. TNA denies that it owes Plaintiff that money.” That’s pretty definitive on their part.
  • “TNA denies that Broadhead made any false representations or that he intended to mislead Plaintiff,” and “TNA denies that [Ron] Harris misrepresented any facts or information to Plaintiff. TNA admits that it is in continual discussions with various parties concerning upcoming shows.” This refers to Audience of One’s claim that Broadhead assured them a long-term relationship while making a deal with Aroluxe Media to take over their duties.
  • “TNA admits that it sent the 3.18.16 payment via FedEx, and that an accurate copy of the payment is attached [to the complaint] as Exhibit 2.” This payment was made just a few days after the company debt with Aroluxe was registered with the states of Tennessee and Delaware.

It looks like TNA isn’t making a deal to settle this case any time soon.
