02.24.11 [Star News] Rain is found not guilty even in the Supreme Court

Rain who faced a 4.6 billion won lawsuit claiming he defaulted on production agency ‘Well Made Star M’s contract when his world tour was cancelled, has been found not guilty even in the Supreme Court after the verdicts of the first and second trials.

Before this, Rain contracted to hold 35 world tour concerts with ‘Star M’ in 2006~2007, but the cancellation of the concert due to the trademark infringement of his name ‘Rain’ in the USA forced him to hold only 19 concerts.

For this reason, ‘Star M’ filed a 4.6 billion won compensation suit against Rain and JYP Entertainment claiming they didn’t carry out their promise.

In this connection, the appellate court has affirmed the judgment of the lower court of that, “The reason why his concert was cancelled in the USA, is that ‘Star M’ mishandled the case of the trade mark dispute”

Adding, the Supreme Court has handed down its decision, “Rain and JYP Ent. do not need to return the money paid in advance. And ‘Star M’ which organized his China concert, will be liable for any damage caused by its cancellation.

    @patricia….that was the Supreme Court in Korea.

    i didn’t know StarM continued pursuing this case all the way up to the Supreme Court. no way could they think they could win this after losing in two lower courts. i think their ultimate aim was to cause Rain grief by being just plain mean. now look, they’ve spent their money on trying to break him but it seems that it backfired on them. they are out of their money, lost the case (3x), and Rain and Clouds are not broken. congrats to Rain and congrats to fans the world over for sticking and staying by his side. this is finally over.

      @Busybee1982 is this the case with that Mr. Kim guy was suing Rain? The one that had said Rain was gambling in Las Vegas and had borrowed money from him.

    @flower…no. that case is over with and Rain was found innocent because some of the language had been fasified/altered. plus, that case had already been settled in Rain’s favor. but Kim, apparently out of anger at losing went on a smear campaign by submitting the altered doc. to the Korean news. if you remember there were 3 cases at the end of 2010 that were announced in Rain’s favor. 1) the Kim case; 2) the case where small investor’s claim of Rain defrauding them and 3) can’t remember (probably can find this somewhere on this site)

    but this particular one was related to the concelled 2006-2007 concerts that StarM had purchased the rights to handle.
