Attorney John Girardi is representing Chelsea Chinery, Shannon McAuliffe, and Desiree Flores over breach of contract, fraud suit and negligent misrepresentation.
The new lawsuit claims that the festival's founders defrauded fans by paying over 400 social media personalities to promote the event. It claims that the social media posts went against FTC regulations by stating that the influencers did not reveal they were being compensated by the Fyre Festival organizers.
The complaint which was filed in Los Angeles claims that Ja Rule and Billy McFarland knew they couldn't pull off the festival at least a month prior to its star, but offered no warnings to ticket holders.
The complaint seeks punitive damages and restitution.
Law firms really are the true winners out of the Fyre Festival.
