Tommy Tune Sues Manager, Marvin Shulman

•  Recent Cases     updated  2008/07/22 09:41


Tommy Tune claims his manager Marvin Shulman took him for a long, expensive ride, overcharging for commissions, taking a commission even on the sale of Tune's home and his capital gains, and outsourcing management duties to third parties, using Tune's money to pay for services for which Tune already had paid Shulman.

Tune, of New York, a singer, actor, dancer, choreographer and director, says he has won nine Tony Awards and a plethora of other accolades. Shulman operates his co-defendant business, Marvin Shulman Management, out of Miami.

Here is an excerpt from the federal complaint: "(A)fter unlawfully persuading Mr. Tune to pay them a business management commission far in excess of industry norms through misrepresentation and breaches of fiduciary duty, defendants assessed commission charges against Mr. Tune in excess of even that inflated amount and, in derogation of the parties' agreement and governing securities regulations, paid themselves commissions on Mr. Tune's capital gains, including the proceeds realized on the sale of his residents. Defendants also improperly 'outsourced' to certain third parties a number of the central business management functions that Mr. Tune engaged defendants to perform, and then wrote checks from Mr. Tune's funds to pay for the fees charged by these third parties for the very services that Mr. Tune was already paying defendants."

Tune demands an accounting and damages for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and unjust enrichment. The complaint does not estimate the damages, other than to say they exceed $75,000. Tune is represented by John Rosenberg with Rosenberg & Geiger.
