RBM Group International has sued Pacquiao in a breach of contract lawsuit before the Los Angeles Superior Court in California . (Read: Manny Pacquiao sued by record label for $10 million)
Based on court records, “partial dismissal without prejudice" against Emmanuel Pacquiao Foundation was filed by the lawyer of the “plaintiff/petitioner" on December 14, 2010.
Pacquiao hired Los Angeles-based law firm Hobson Dungog + Davis LLP.
GMANews.TV tried to get in touch with RGB Group lawyer Steven J. Cooper but calls were not answered.
RGB Group filed a breach of contract civil suit last November 17, 2010 against Emmanuel “Manny" Pacquiao and his Emmanuel Pacquiao Foundation, Carlito “Lito" Camo, and 10 other John Does, alleging that the eight division world champion reneged on his promise to “record the first two" of the contracted 12 songs “upon receipt of $40,000" on September 16, 2009.
The RGB Group, which counts Grammy Award winning producer and engineer Richard Segal Huredia as a member, agreed to pay Pacquiao $160,000 to record 12 songs.
Isaac Reain, producer/songwriter/engineer and artist; Ryan Dennison (president) producer/songwriter/engineer; Randy Sadd (head of radio promotion and top US promoter); head marketing/vice president and secretary, Gregorio Simbillo; MTV publicist Ginger Salaheih; Chief Operating Officer and LA Pinoy magazine publisher Rod Dasco; and Chief Executive Officer LA Pinoy magazine co-publisher Cecilia Lim are the members of the RGB Group International.
Attorney Marsha-laine F. Dungog, Pacquiao’s lawyer, said they are set to file a demurrer, which will be heard on March 23, 2011, before Judge Malcolm Mackey. A demurrer is a claim by the defendant (Pacquiao) that even if the allegations in a complaint are true, they are not sufficient to impose any liability on the defendant.
“We look forward to a dismissal of all charges against Congressman Pacquiao," said Dungog.
