Update: Stepanian Responds to SavePBS

On Wednesday, we told you about a website called SavePBS.org that was launched to help raise funds for the members of PBS (George Porter Jr., Brian Stoltz & Russell Batiste) in the legal defense of a lawsuit filed by Highsteppin’ Productions, LLC. While the site doesn’t give any information on why the New Orleans-based musicians are being sued by their former management company, a search of Justia.com turns up a suit filed on Dec. 29th, 2009 for breach of contract and another suit filed on November 22 of this year that saw the case moved to Bankruptcy Court.

As we mentioned in the initial article, we asked Highsteppin’ Productions for a statement about the launch of SavePBS.org and the response from company president Phil Stepanian reads in part…

We believe that numerous statements appearing on bulletin boards and other websites about this situation are inaccurate. It is our view, as the case is winding its way through the judicial system, that it is advisable not to make any further comments concerning the pending litigation.

Consistent with this objective, therefore, I have refrained from making any public comment–I would prefer that the legal process determine the just outcome. When there is something of interest to report, I will make known the results as determined by the Court system.

There are at least two sides to every story, but with both sides declining to get into specifics, not much is publicly known about the details of the case(s) outside of an article that ran on the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly blog. We’ll keep you updated on any further developments in this legal battle.
