Motley Crue.s Day In Court

Half of unsavoury metal act MOTLEY CRUE found themselves in court in Los Angeles yesterday (07APR03).

Ex-Mötley Crüe drummer TOMMY LEE faced trial in one area courtroom, and frontman VINCE NEIL was sentenced in another.

Lee's is on trial in the wrongful-death case, brought by the parents of a young boy who drowned during a party at the rocker's home.

Television producer JAMES VERES and actress URSULA KARVEN are suing Lee, claiming he failed to properly supervise their four-year-old son, DANIEL KARVEN-VERES, who was found floating face down in the shallow end of a backyard pool at Lee's Malibu estate on June 16, 2001.

The tragedy occurred during a fifth birthday bash for Lee's oldest son ANDERSON.

Lee told a reporter last year (02), "I was watching my boy. I can't watch somebody else's kid, and it's really not my responsibility."

James Veres, says, "It was a birthday party like a million other birthday parties, and, obviously, there wasn't enough help at the pool. It's inexcusable and just amazing to me."

Vince Neil pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour battery charge stemming from a fight outside a Sunset Strip, Los Angeles club last year (02).

The Crüe singer, who wasn't in court and entered the plea through his lawyer, must complete 100 hours of community service and pay restitution for punching music producer MICHAEL SCHUMAN.
