    I wouldn't mind seeing that. I wonder if it's just royalties on the old stuff or if there is more to it??

    The list only says documents have been submitted by the Plantiff/Petitioner or in other words Roth. Has anyone noticed it says David Lee Roth vs. Edward Van Halen? if its a royalty thing shouldn't it be David Lee Roth vs. Warner Bros. or Van Halen? Kinda makes you wonder if theres a bit more involved.

    I have a few different takes on this. I don't believe that this lawsuit necessarily means that Roth is doing this out of spite towards what used to be the remaining members of the Van Halen band . It is strictly a financial case. I don't know if any of you remember a thread a while back where it showed a court document showing a revision in the Van Halen publishing catalogue and it mentioned all four of the original members names. There was to be a new legal change to the initial one signed by all members in I believe 1981.

    You take that and we can start speculating.

    1) There are the financial dealings that were mentioned in Sambo's alleged book. Also, they(Roth and Hagar) might have exchanged words relating to the past VH catalogue when they were negotiating the numbers for The Sam and Dave Tour. Hence, that could be one reason while although Dave and Michael Anthony exchanged pleasantries on the road and remained friendly, Roth never allowed or invited M.A. on stage. Roth said "It's not the right time" etc. Dave probably had been advised that playing Van Halen songs that were in contest with a possible future defendant might damage his case.

    2) The summer of 2000 recording sessions and the big speculation of a supposed reunion tour of 2001 that was widely reported. In which Ed made the statement about "you used to be able to do this with a handshake... Everything was fine until the lawyers got involved" or something along those lines.

    3)The "amicable" split from Warner Brothers. It has been mentioned quite frequently that it was a Roth reunion or nothing. Also, WB went ahead and released only the early catalogue with hopes of the big reunion. Also note that when the subsiquent VH/Roth reunion failed Dave's "A Little Aint' Enough-WB" and "Your Filthy Little Mouth-Reprise(a subsidiary label of WB's)" were both discontinued from Warner Brother's catalogue.

    Do you follow? It's simply business. I'm not legally educated but I have a similar scenario that might make a little sense. A few years ago my brother in law left a large Mortgage firm along with his boss to form their own firm. Well a couple of years later they became very successful locally and a larger national firm bought them out. To make a long story short, my brother in law had to sue his former partner over the resolution of their former company and its assets and residuals. The case was settled out of court through mediation and they remain friends to this day. It's just with big partnerships involving alot of money, there can be a great deal of red tape to cut before all parties are satisfied.
