MuchMusic Reports the following:
A recording studio has filed a breach of contract suit against Nickelback. The suit, filed with B.C.'s provincial Supreme Court, alleges that the band owes the Turtle Recording company production royalties and property rights to songs from the band's album, "Curb." Last year, Nickelback won a lawsuit against their former managers over ownership of the "Curb" album. No word yet on when the suit will reach the courts.
