Gas Monkey Garage VS Richard Rawlings: $6 Million Lawsuit
The lawsuit between Gas Monkey Garage and Richard Rawlings has been a highly publicized legal battle. In 2019, Gas Monkey Garage filed a $6 million lawsuit against Richard Rawlings, accusing him of breach of contract, fraud, and unjust enrichment. According to Gas Monkey Garage, Rawlings had violated the terms of a licensing agreement by promoting a rival bar and restaurant in the Dallas area, despite a non-compete clause in his contract. The lawsuit also claimed that Rawlings had diverted business opportunities away from Gas Monkey Garage and misappropriated company funds.
In response, Rawlings denied the allegations and countersued Gas Monkey Garage for breach of contract, claiming that he was owed money for his appearances on “Fast N’ Loud” and other related projects.
The legal battle between Gas Monkey Garage and Richard Rawlings is ongoing, and it remains to be seen how it will be resolved. However, it’s clear that this dispute has put a strain on the once-close relationship between Rawlings and his former business partners.
