We mentioned Thrillcall in passing in early 2012 when it launched an iOS app for selling last-minute gig tickets (Bulletin, 16-Feb-12) but hadn’t heard much of it since then.

Chief Jonathan Leone fired Chad Taylor and Matthew Tomaszewicz in October, sparking their lawsuit for breach of oral contract, breach of fiduciary duty and wrongful retaliation. There are some eyebrow-raising claims in the lawsuit of financial mismanagement, although Leone is claiming the lawsuit is sour grapes after the two were fired due to a “disagreement over management of the company”.
