Instead of dancing on a white silt beaches of Great Exuma in a Bahamas, Fyre Festival attendees found themselves stranded in airports, some but any food or water, incompetent to get home.

The three-day party, orderly by Ja Rule and tech businessman Billy McFarland, was ostensible to take place on a private beach in a Bahamas for dual weekends, Apr 28-30 and May 5-7.

But guests, many of whom had spent between $1,200 and $100,000 on tickets — some spent some-more than $200,000 — described a festival as a “complete disaster” with half-built tents, behind flights, and no one around to help.

Now Ja Rule and McFarland, who also owns Magnises and Fyre Media, are a targets of a lawsuit filed on Sunday by Mark Geragos, a luminary hearing lawyer. The fit was filed in a US District Court for a Central District of California, and Geragos is seeking class-action standing with an expected 150 participants, according to Variety.

The plaintiff, Daniel Jung, is accusing a organizers of fraud, crack of contract, crack of compact of good faith, and inattentive misrepresentation. The lawsuit seeks during slightest $100 million in damages.
