Scott Eden Management v. Kavovit
Westchester County Supreme Court
563 N.Y.S.2d 1001 (1990)
Andrew Kavovit (defendant), a minor and an actor, entered a contract with Scott Eden Management (Eden) (plaintiff) for Eden to manage Kavovit’s entertainment career in exchange for a commission of 15 percent on Kavovit’s compensation. Kavovit also entered a contract with the Andreadis Agency, which was selected by Eden, for an additional 10 percent commission. Kavovit secured a regular role on a popular television soap opera. Kavovit then sought to disaffirm the contract with Eden on infancy grounds and cease payment of commissions, including on income generated form Kavovit’s soap-opera role. Eden brought suit against Kavovit and Kavovit’s parents (defendants) to recover sums due as well as $50,000 for tortious interference with Eden’s relationship with the Andreadis Agency.
