Judge Rules in Favor of Rockman

Porn Valley- posted on

Last week a Los Angeles Superior Court small claims judge (Hon. Patricia Dupre) ruled in favor of Brett Rockman and Rockman Entertainment in a lawsuit against Shane Sawitz of Pretty Girl International.

In a dispute over payment of a booth shared during the 2005 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, which as Rockman put it, “was simply a matter a keeping your commitment,” the judge ruled that Shane equally benefited by having his company name listed in the show directory and having a place where customers could find his company, and thus was required to keep his commitment of paying 50% of the total cost of the booth.

Shane and his “witnesses” argued to no avail that the booth space was not shared equally by both parties. Meanwhile, Rockman maintained that this case was not about how much space was or wasn’t used but about breaching an oral contract. Rockman in his closing arguments pointed out to the judge regarding Shane’s group of witnesses, “Your Honor, ironically, you are actually looking at most of the entourage that occupied my booth…imagine all these people in a 10×10 booth…that’s pretty crowded.”

This comment came in response to one of the witnesses’ claim that the PGI group only occupied “10%” of the booth during the 4 day tradeshow–a claim Brett found ludicrous. When asked about the case Brett said, “In this business you have to pick your battles and sometimes it’s just the principle that counts”
