The Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego has hosted a long list of dignitaries, including 11 U.S. presidents and royalty from at least 10 countries. The seaside resort was scheduled to welcome the partners of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld in April. But, given tough times, the firm canceled its partner retreat. Now, the hotel has filed a breach of contract suit, claiming it is entitled to $385,950 in liquidated damages for, among other things, "877 sleeping room nights" that were set aside for the firm.
