LAS VEGAS (AP) - The owners of a business featured in the cable television show "Pawn Stars" and the network that handles it are being sued by a Las Vegas promoter who claims he was wrongly fired in January and denied a share of profits.
Wayne Jefferies alleges breach of contract by Gold & Silver Pawn Shop Inc. and its owners, and improper interference in business dealings by A&E Network and the History Channel.
Attorney Douglas Gerrard represents Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. He said Monday he hasn't seen the civil lawsuit filed Thursday in Nevada state court. He declined comment.
A network spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to messages.
Attorneys Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff represent Jefferies.
They say Jefferies represented the pawn shop owners from 2007 until he was fired in January.
