A class-action lawsuit filed on Friday against Tough Mudder, Inc. alleges breech of contract after the company moved the location of one of its obstacle course events.
Lisa Pazol, Maria Newman, Lisa Russ and Audrey Bennett sued Tough Mudder after the company moved the location of its Mudderella Boston twice within two weeks of the event taking place.
Originally scheduled for Sept. 6 at Kimbal Farm in Haverhill, Massachusetts, the company announced on Aug. 22 that it moved the Mudderella Boston to Amebury, Massachusetts. A week later the event was again moved to Westbrook, Maine.
The lawsuit alleges, Tough Mudder failed to get proper permits from the cities of Haverhill and Amesbury in order to hold the event.
The plaintiffs said they each contributed funds ranging from $74 to more than $100 to participate in the Mudderella Boston, but couldn't attend due to the change in venue.
Tough Mudder allegedly said it wouldn't offer a refund of the registration fees, but would transfer the fee to another event in 2014 or 2015.
The plaintiffs allege Tough Mudder breached its contract, and good faith and fair dealing by moving the event twice and for refusing to refund the registration fee.
The plaintiffs are represented by James L. O'Connor, James M. Galliher and C. Deborah Phillips of Nickless, Phillips and O'Connor from Fitchburg, Massachusetts.
