Dick Clark sues Queen Mary Operators

Dick Clark is suing the operator of the Queen Mary ocean liner, alleging that fraud and breach of contract prevented construction of a music-themed museum as part of a $150-million tourism project.

Clark Communications claims Queens Seaport Development breached an agreement to develop and maintain Dick Clark's Great American Music Experience. Clark's firm was also to receive $15,000 in monthly consulting fees for seven years, but according to the lawsuit, Queens Seaport defaulted on the monthly payments.

The museum was proposed as part of a $150-million complex around the Queen Mary, the transportation relic converted to a tourist attraction in Long Beach Harbour. The complex also was to have a 7,500-seat events venue in the former Spruce Goose dome and a science fiction hall of fame.
