Exxxotica Settles Lawsuit With City of Secaucus, N.J.

Lyla Katz

SECAUCUS, N.J.The lawsuit involving the town of Secaucus, New Jersey and Exxxotica New York has been resolved.

The lawsuit stemmed from the 2008 Exxxotica event, which was originally planned to take place in Secaucus but was abruptly canceled.

In its federal complaint, Exxxotic was seeking punitive damages for breach of contract, breach of good faith, interference with a contractual relationship and negligent, fraudulent and intentional misrepresentations.

The expo was moved to the New Jersey Exposition Center in Edison, N.J. with less than a week's notice. It has remained there since and is now entering its fourth year at the venue with Exxxotica New Jersey scheduled for Nov. 4-6.

By entering into settlement of this matter, Exxxotica New York and the town of Secaucus have not admitted to any liability, wrongdoing or to any violations of state, federal law or to a rule or regulation, according to a statement released today.

The statement also said that the basis for the settlement between the parties is based on economics in order to avoid protracted litigation and further expenditure of costs and attorneys fees.

However, Exxxotica New York continues to peruse claims against the Meadowlands Convention Center's owners, Hartz Mountain and management company, SMG.
