Fraud lawsuit dismissed vs Fisher Dance Center, The Dance Foundation following settlement

By Whitney Brakken | Dec 4, 2013

A lawsuit against The Fisher Dance Center and The Dance Foundation was dismissed after the two sides reached a settlement agreement.

In March 2014, plaintiffs Ickeya Glover and Patricia Williams and defendants Robin R. Fisher, the dance center and dance foundation signed an agreement ending the litigation. According to documents supplied by the defendants, the case was settled for $4,500.

Cook County Circuit Court records indicate the case was dismissed by stipulation and agreement in March 2014.

Glover and Williams had filed a lawsuit in November 2013 in Cook County against  Fisher and her dance-related organizations, claiming fraud, violations of the Illinois Right of Publicity Act, misappropriation of name and likeness/false light, breach of oral or implied agreement, unjust enrichment and negligence.

Glover had been a student of Fisher Dance Center and a designated scholarship recipient of The Dance Foundation. Williams is Glover's mother.

The complaint alleged Fisher Dance Center undertook fundraising efforts for a tour and performance in Italy and Glover was encouraged to participate. The plaintiffs alleged they donated approximately $3,000 for the effort, but then learned Glover would be excluded from the Italy tour.

The plaintiffs contend the defendants fraudulently misrepresented and concealed the fact that Glover would be excluded from the tour.

In addition, the complaint alleges that the defendants used the plaintiffs' names, likenesses and personal information without authorization.

The plaintiffs were represented by in the matter by Robert A. Langendorf P.C.

Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 2013L012995.
