However, Gee left open for the plaintiffs to amend the fraud claim provided that they specify more details pertaining to the accusations.

In federal court you have to be explicit about who said what to whom, otherwise you can't claim fraud.  "You ripped me off" is not good enough. https://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcp/rule_9

It's a shame none of their drummers are alive to share in the payout.

Will Ian get 10% of the payout?

"...the Spinal Tap co-creators received just $81 in merchandising income and $98 in musical sales income over the last few decades..."

And you thought minimum wage was bad.

Guest added, "We are setting a precedent for similarly aggrieved artists who can't afford to do this themselves. We're sending a message to the so-called Hollywood accounting cabal as a whole: treat creators from the outset with fairness and respect!"

Not speaking on this case specifically, but Shearer is a cock. He always thinks he's owed more money. He continuously biatches about how he believes he's owned more from his work on The Simpsons including merch sales. Dude can make millions literally phoning in his work, and still not be happy.

They made like $81 off merch, so he might have a point here.

Disaster Area was a plutonium rock band from the Gagrakacka Mind Zones and was generally regarded as not only the loudest rock band in the Galaxy, but also as being the loudest noise of any kind at all.
