(Classic Rock) The company that handles Led Zeppelin publishing has filed an appeal over $800,000 in legal costs that were incurred during the trial over the classic song "Stairway To Heaven".

A jury found in June that Jimmy Page and Robert Plant had not plagiarised Spirit guitarist Randy California, whose composition Taurus was said to be notably similar to Led Zeppelin's classic track.

But Judge Gary Klausner later ruled that Warner/Chappell Music were not entitled to have their costs covered by California's estate, represented by lawyer Francis Malofiy.

Klausner said that the suit had carried enough merit to go to trial, and that there was no evidence of "nefarious motives" on Malofiy's part. Now Warner/Chappell have applied to have the costs ruling overturned, citing "extensive and ongoing litigation misconduct" as the reason their claim should be reconsidered. here.
