Augusta-area company sued over Masters Tournament tickets

A Canadian entertainment company has filed suit against an Augusta-area firm over the delivery of 100 tickets for this year’s Masters Tournament.

Global Events Manage­ment Group filed the federal lawsuit Monday against Joseph Mullins and Mullins Management seeking a minimum of $1.3 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

According to the complaint, Global contracted with Mullins to provide 111 four-day passes to the tournament in 2012 without any problems.

Global, however, claims Mullins violated its 2013 contract to provide 100 four-day passes and additional services for Global customers. Global included as exhibits receipts for $342,000 the Ontario company contends it sent to cover the cost of the tickets, housing and transportation.

When Global customers reached Augusta, there were no tickets, and, according to the lawsuit, Mullins told the customers that Global was to blame because it had not made payments. Mullins told the customers that he could get them tickets for additional fees, according to the lawsuit.

In addition to breach of contract, Global is seeking damages for slander.
