Alabama Battle Over Cash

(AP) The drummer for the country group Alabama has been sued by his fellow band members, who say he was overpaid $202,670.

The lawsuit filed May 9 in the Circuit Court of DeKalb County, Ala., claims that in 2003 Mark Herndon was paid for his share of net merchandise sales during the band's "American Farewell Tour" before a final accounting was done.

The final accounting, the suit claims, found that "there were no net merchandise revenues as defined by the contract." [The key word is "net" here, sounds like they had one of the lawyers that draw up record company contracts put this one together. - Seems there is a dispute over some CD money as well, read it here]
