A federal lawsuit has been filed in a dispute among big-name tenants at the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

The owner of the Hawaiian Tropic Zone restaurant and nightlife destination on Monday sued magician Steve Wyrick and his Wyrick Magical Productions Inc., claiming Wyrick has failed to comply with the terms of an August 2008 cross-promotion deal.

New York-based HT Rest Vegas LLC, owner of Hawaiian Tropic, said Wyrick provided it with 3,000 "VIP complimentary vouchers" to Wyrick's Real Magic show for re-sale to the public.

A year after the contract was signed, Hawaiian Tropic said it held 2,927 unsold show vouchers and that Wyrick has failed to re-purchase them at the agreed price of $30 per voucher or $87,810.

Hawaiian Tropic also charges that Wyrick agreed to reimburse Hawaiian Tropic for any dinner vouchers that were presented by Hawaiian Tropic customers who had purchased a dinner and show package from Wyrick. The suit says Wyrick has failed to reimburse Hawaiian Tropic for 36 vouchers valued at $45 apiece, or $1,620.

"Wyrick and Wyrick Magical have further breached the agreement by failing to advertise the dinner/show package as agreed, and failing to use their best commercially reasonable efforts to sell the dinner/show packages," the lawsuit charges, asserting claims of breach of contract.

An attorney for Wyrick said Tuesday he couldn't comment at this time on the Hawaiian Tropic lawsuit.
