Taylor Lautner’s lawyer is calling a RV company’s offer to settle the actor’s lawsuit with a push-up contest a “facetious suggestion.”
Lautner filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit last week against McMahon’s RV, alleging they failed to deliver a customized $300,000 trailer as promised.
“McMahon RV’s response to our client’s legitimate claim further demonstrates the lack of professionalism that Mr. McMahon, his company and his employees have exhibited from the outset, and that compelled the filing of this lawsuit in the first place,” Lautner’s attorney, Robert Barta, said in a statement.
Instead of resolving the suit with a push-up challenge, Barta suggested that the company’s owner, Brent McMahon, donate the $40,000 Lautner is suing for to a charity of the Twilight actor’s choice.
McMahon had vowed that should he win the contest, the money would go to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County.
It is not yet known whether McMahon will accept the new offer.
