Atlanta nightclub drops lawsuit against LeBron

LeBron’s team of lawyers came in and made quick work of this.

About 48 hours after a lawsuit was filed, an Atlanta nightclub amended it to take LeBron James out of it, the Associated Press reports (via CBS Eye on Basketball).

The Opera nightclub says “the matter has been resolved,” and it actually was “misled” by someone who was not authorized to act on James’ behalf.

The suit was over a party where LeBron was allegedly going to be paid $25,000 to appear, but instead of Opera James was going to appear at another club, the Gold Room. Apparently someone was promising to get James to appear when they couldn’t actually deliver him.

We don’t think concern over this led to James having an off night against the Lakers, we think that was Ron Artest.
