TAUBMAN MUSEUM OF ART SETTLES LAWSUIT
New Café Operator, Catering Services Coming February 1, 2011
Roanoke, Va. (Dec. 22, 2011) – Officials at the The Taubman Museum of Art have announced that a settlement has been reached in the museum’s lawsuit against SMG, the company currently responsible for operating Norah’s Café and providing catering services for museum events.
In a letter dated December 3, 2010, SMG had indicated its intent to discontinue providing service, and vacate the museum by December 18, 2010. Because SMG intended to breach its contract, the lawsuit was filed to protect the rights of the Museum and its patrons. According to the settlement agreement, SMG will continue in its current capacity, operating the café and providing catering services for special events, through January 31, 2011.
