The promoter of Michael Jackson's 1984 "Victory Tour" concerts in Los Angeles was sued for $199,000 by Times Mirror Co. on behalf of the Los Angeles Times Fund, a charity for underprivileged youth, for failure to pay donations to the fund for 20 pages of newspaper advertising promoting the concerts. The Los Angeles federal court suit was filed against Charles W. Sullivan of Boston, vice president of the New England Patriots football team as well as chairman of Stadium Management Corp., which staged the 20-city tour by the Jacksons. Sullivan and the firm did make one $10,000 payment to the Times Fund, but have refused to make any others until financial problems with the Jacksons can be settled, according to the suit.
