That resulted in another article in which Imagn continued to threaten legal action.
Late on Friday, Gibbons also emailed me a further statement and a detailed description of what he claimed to be the financial arrangements between the foundation and Imagn information he'd said he hadn't felt at liberty to disclose the day before.
It was on Monday that I received confirmation from Patrick that Imagn had filed its breach-of-contract lawsuit on Friday.
Imagn also indicated that the refund process is underway and ticket holders are beginning to receive their money back.
The foundation called off the concert Wednesday, citing concerns that Imagn was unable to stage the event as planned.
Imagn Events approached the foundation with the idea, according to foundation representatives.
"Imagn Events required a loan from us for $248,750, documented by a written note that was due to be paid back by August 1, 2019," the foundation said in a written statement.
Imagn Events sent an email to customers Thursday regarding ticket refunds.
Because the foundation was not in a position to directly cancel the festival, it canceled its contract with Imagn Events instead, Gibbons said.
"They came to us in late January to talk to us about a concert for veterans," Gibbons said of Imagn Events.
Imagn Events issued a statement Thursday blasting back against the foundation for publicly releasing the name and cellphone number of a team member.
"However, the operational hurdles remaining and the limits facing the foundation as a result of loans made to Imagn
to allow the booking of the performers, prevented the foundation from saving the event despite our very best efforts and cooperation from the Boomers," the statement reads.
