You're reading: St. Petersburg to try lawsuit against Madonna on Oct. 11

St. Petersburg - The trial of the lawsuit against Madonna and the organizers of her recent concert in St. Petersburg will begin in the St. Petersburg Moskovsky District Court on October 11, lawyer Alexander Pochuyev told Interfax on Monday.

“The trial of the lawsuit will begin on Oct.11. We believe the
fact that the date of the hearing has been determined indicates that the
court is satisfied with the results of our search for Madonna’s address
and other documents [needed for filing the lawsuit],” the lawyer said.

“According to our estimation, the trial of the lawsuit can take from
three months to one year. We are hoping we can prosecute the persons who
violate the law,” Pochuyev said.

According to earlier reports, the St. Petersburg Moskovsky District
Court accepted the lawsuit against Madonna, the concert hall
Peterburgsky, where the concert took place, and the company PMI, the
organizer of the concert, in August.

The lawsuit was filed by the Russian Trade Union and some other
public associations. The plaintiffs are seeking to recover from Madonna
and the concert organizers 333 million rubles for insulting the feelings
of believers and the cultural traditions of the city residents. Among
the documents attached to the lawsuit is a video which, according to the
Trade Union, shows Madonna trampling an Orthodox cross and asking for
people to raise their hands wearing pink bracelets.
