Garth Brooks Lawsuit
January 22, 2012 by staff
Garth Brooks Lawsuit, Testimony began Wednesday morning as the CEO of Integris Southwest Medical Center in Oklahoma City and Integris Canadian Valley in Yukon took the stand.
Following extensive opening statements by attorneys for the Garth Brooks and Integris, Integris CEO James Moore took the stand to answer initial questions regarding the beginnings of the relationship between Integris and Brooks.
Brooks is seeking a return of a $500,000 gift to Integris to honor his mother, which included naming rights. Integris accepted the gift, but says no naming rights were attached to the gift.
Moore testified that the Yukon hospital, built in 2001, was in plans to expand and seeking financial means to raise funds.
Among the early suggestions made by an Integris trustee was the possibility of a concert by Yukon native Brooks, with the suggestion of naming the hospital’s planned women¹s center after Brooks’ late mother, Colleen Brooks.
Moore testified he felt a women’s center would be of particular interest to Brooks, knowing of his “passionate love” of his mother, and sought to contact him by way of his father, Ray Brooks.
Once contacted, the senior Brooks was given a tour of the hospital in Yukon, with Moore expressing to him an interest in “establishing a relationship with the Brooks family,” and to seek a means to “honor the life of Colleen Brooks,” greatly appreciating the opportunity.
“The proposed concert was merely one of many means (to involve Garth Brooks) which were discussed early on, it was a brainstorming session, and several things were brought up,” Moore testified.
