So, should my friend get a lawyer and see if this Bill Stanley character will provide his contact info so the lawyer can set him straight?

What I find really odd is my friend says he has tried numerous times to get this guy's contact info, and the name of who he is working for and this guy refuses to give this out.

If he is working for KAPPA, why doesn't he say so?

Or, is he an independant contractor who gets a cut of any fines he can get levied against someone?
I can't recommend what someone else should do but me personally? I wouldn't go to the expense.

If this guy were to get a lawyer to go after your friend I think he'd be told pretty quick that he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Having said that: Looney people have been known to cause others a lot of expense and headache with frivolous lawsuits so I would recomend he keep any and all corespondance with the guy and make notes of any personal conversations.

Before this guy can even begin to do ANYTHING he will have to PROVE in court that one of these shows is illegal which would cost him many thousands of dollars and probably take a couple of years. He can't go after your friend for advertising illegal shows when none of them have been shown in court to be illegal.

Tell your friend to to tell this guy to "Leave me alone or I'll sue You for harassment".
