A snag with Nassau Coliseum refunds, thanks to Prokhorov's departure (and another erroneous description of the leaseholder)

The Concerts Were Canceled Months Ago. So Where Are the Refunds?, the New York Times reported yesterday, concerning refunds for Tool and Judas Priest shows at the Nassau Coliseum

Nassau County, the building's owner, says the former leaseholder, Mikhail Prokhorov's Nassau Events Center, is responsible. The latter entity claims to be “working closely with Ticketmaster regarding refunds" but wouldn't explain to the Times the reason for such delays.

Given that Nassau Events Center has walked away from the lease, the possibility of recourse remains in question.

The Times erroneously described the new leaseholder as the U.S. Immigration Fund, which is a regional center that recruits--and profits from--immigrant investors under the EB-5 program. But no one responded to my tweet, below.
