That fee is extremely unlikely to hold up in court, especially since Maryland voted against it, and then acted to get out before the year was even over.

A liquidated damages clause still has to be reasonable and not punitive. The $50MM fee is comically excessive and is obviously not intended (as it legally must) to compensate the conference.
