Portland man files suit over Vancouver marathon cancellation
Aug. 22, 2017
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A Portland man filed a class-action lawsuit against Energy Events — the company that stages the Vancouver USA Marathon — on behalf of all Oregon consumers who registered for the race.
The Columbian reports (http://bit.ly/2vmufom ) the complaint filed Saturday on behalf of Cory Bradley in U.S. District Court in Portland alleges unlawful trade practices and unjust profit at another's expense.
The complaint follows the cancellation of the 2017 Vancouver USA Marathon and seeks a jury trial for restitution over registration fees.
Bradley says he paid $183.24 in registration fees for him and his wife. The complaint says they believed if they paid the fee, they could attend the Sept. 17 marathon.
The company announced Friday it was canceling the marathon after "careful consideration for several weeks and reviewing the finances."
