Shriners sue Live Nation, Old National over Murat renaming

(INDIANAPOLIS BUSINESS JOURNAL) — The Murat Temple Association has filed suit against Live Nation Worldwide and Old National Bank with hopes of overturning a naming-rights deal for a landmark entertainment and hospitality venue in downtown Indianapolis.

The Murat Temple Association is a Shriners affiiate that owns the Murat Centre, which on March 16 was renamed the “Old National Centre” in a three-year deal between the bank and Live Nation. Terms of the naming-rights deal were not disclosed.

MTA’s suit alleges that Live Nation’s lease does not include rights to rename the building, and that the name change “caused Shriners to be held in lesser light by the general public, who erroneously believe Shriners were responsible for the name change, and from whom money is raised to support…Shriners Hospital for Children.”
