08-27-02 antiGUY
Bob Daisley will not go gently into that good night, at least not without a fight. Despite having his lawsuit against Ozzy and his wife/manager Sharon Osbourne thrown out of court last week because the statute of limitations had passed, Daisley plans to keep fighting.  Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake claim that they was not properly compensated by Osbourne for their work on the former Black Sabbath frontman’s first two solo albums. Daisley also says that he deserves songwriting credit for several Ozzy Osbourne songs. 

Daisley issued a statement to Australian rock site Undercover addressing the setback his case suffered last week and warns that “…it’s not over yet.” 

"Obviously, this is a disappointing ruling, but it's not over yet,” Said Daisley in a statement. ”This case has merit--Lee and I have been struggling for two decades just to receive the correct royalties and credit that's due us--and we are confident that we will prevail in the end."

Daisley and Kerslake filed suit against Osbourne in 1998 and the a court date was finally set for next February, however last week the suit was dismissed last week by a California Superior Court Judge, who said that the statute of limitations had passed.  (see story)
