    Default No Contract with Event Venue, What Can Happen

    My question involves business law in the state of: Oregon

    My question involves business law in the state of: Oregon

    I held an event this last Friday 1-2-09 at an event venue which I signed no contract at all. The total venue cost was $2,500 I was required to pay a $1,250 deposit which I wrote a check for on 12-31-08, only two days prior to the event. I was required to pay the rest after the event at which they took $1,250 to cover the entire venue cost. The event was 5 hours long from 9pm-2am, and was cut short at 12am, for reasons the venue manager could not explain. I was not checking the amount of people coming in, nor were they.

    The venue manager stated that $2,500 was accumulated in $10 cover charges, where as through photos of the event there had to be an estimated 400-500 people at the event. The venue manager will not give me the owners contact information

    I put a stop-payment on the check, my question is because there was no contract, what can the venue manager possibly do?

    He can sue you for the balance of the contract price. You can countersue if you believe he violated his obligations to you in shutting the doors at midnight.
