The controversy surrounding the Woodstock 50 festival has shifted to state Supreme Court in Manhattan according to USA Today.

The Supreme court is where Woodstock developers are demanding that its former financial partner be ordered to return nearly $17.8 million “in misappropriated” funds. 

Organizers for the festival are seeking a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order against the Dentsu Aegis Network and its Amplifi Live division. 

In an interesting twist, Woodstock 50 is also demanding that “Dentsu cooperate with W50 in connection with W50’s continued planning of the festival, including providing reasonable consents and approvals,”.

“W50 seeks this emergency relief as a result of Dentsu’s outrageous and illegal misconduct that threatens enormous and irreparable harm to W50,” this is all according to the court papers read bye USA Today.
