White Stripes Win Royalties Case

Rockers THE WHITE STRIPES have won their court battle with producer JIM DIAMOND, who accused the band of financial neglect after working on their first two albums. A US District Court in Detroit ruled yesterday (15JUN06) the duo will not have to fork out royalties for the music man, and also quashed claims he was pivotal in creating their signature sound. It found MEG and JACK WHITE had already amply recompensed Diamond by paying him an hourly wage of $35 (GBP19) for time at his Ghetto Recorders studio, which he started in 1996. Singer and guitarist Jack told The Detroit News outside court he was thrilled with the verdict, saying, "You never know what's going to happen in a trial."
