Beastie Boys - Music Label Bosses Suing Beastie Boys Offer Condolences Over Adam Yauch

Officials at a music label who filed suit against the Beastie Boys a day before the death of Adam Yauch have reached out to the hip-hop group to offer their condolences.
Bosses at music label Tuf America launched a legal battle against the Intergalactic hitmakers, alleging the band illegally sampled Trouble Funk's Say What and Drop The Bomb on four of its early tunes - The New Style, Car Thief, Shadrach, and Hold It, Now Hit It.
The papers were filed at the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on Thursday (03May12), just one day before Yauch, also known as Mca, lost his three-year battle with cancer.
The label's attorney, Kelly Talcott, has now addressed the "unfortunate" timing of the legal filing, and sent her condolences to Yauch's loved ones on behalf of the music bosses.
Talcott tells E! News, "I was very sorry to hear of Adam Yauch's untimely passing, and can assure you that the unfortunate timing of the filing of TufAmerica's complaint had nothing to do with his health. On behalf of myself and TufAmerica, I offer our condolences to Adam's family, friends, and fans."
Tuf America chiefs are seeking to take the case to trial.
