The only thing that would get a case thrown out on day one would be if the court it was filed in did not have jurisdiction over the case, the complaint had facial errors, or you didn't pay the filing fee. What I assume you meant was that you don't know why it wasn't dismissed on the pleadings (which would be after the defendant filed an answer). The answer to that is that such a dismissal would require that no cause of action was pled, but I am sure that Rudin's lawyers crafted a complaint that would survive dismissal on that basis. A dismissal at that stage is not possible when there is a factual dispute between the parties.

On the question of whether it was reasonable to close the show when Rudin did, it is a closer question than you make it out to be. It's always easy to spend other people's money but the fact is that the show was not doing great with Audra in it and the prospects of it breaking even after her departure were certainly not obvious. Add to that Rudin's typical approach of closing shows sooner than some others think they would and I think you have a non-nefarious reason for closing the show. Now is Rudin's approach a smart one? I would say not, but we are talking about the person who closed Dolly when others would have kept it going, and there was no insurance "scam" in play there.

Finally, I would not lump Rudin's lawyers in on what you see as a scam. Rudin does not seek nor does he happily receive advice from those he pays (or owes money to, as the case may be). I think he cooked up this lawsuit all by himself and called the lawyers and barked the instructions at them the same way he did to poor Spotco and everybody else who has not (yet) gone public with it. You don't have to talk to too many people in this business to cobble together his modus operandi.
