Mick Mars Wins Legal Victory Against Motley Crue


Motley Crue 2022 Mick Mars achieved a triumph in his ongoing legal clash with Mötley Crüe on Tuesday, as a Los Angeles judge concurred that the veteran rock band unjustly withheld crucial information about its extensive business dealings while simultaneously attempting to remove its founding guitarist early last year.

As revealed in a recent court ruling obtained by Rolling Stone, the judge criticized the band's reluctance, affirming that it left Mars with no recourse but to file a lawsuit for the corporate documents in April of last year. Notably, the judge underscored that the band's delayed disclosure, occurring eight months after the filing, entitles Mars to have his legal expenses covered.

"The requests were not burdensome. Yet, Mars was compelled to file suit, and it appears plain that production would not have occurred without it. Mars is entitled to attorney fees," stated Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant in his ruling on Tuesday.

Despite faulting the band for its actions, the judge declared Mars' lawsuit as "moot" on Tuesday. Consequently, Mars' more recent requests for subsequent 2023 general ledger entries won't be fulfilled, as they were not part of the outstanding documents listed in November.

While the judge's ruling highlighted the band's failure to produce documents promptly, Mötley Crüe's lead attorney, Sasha Frid, declared victory, emphasizing the court's acknowledgment that the band had provided Mars with all necessary documents. "The case is over. That’s the key takeaway," stated Frid, emphasizing the band's fulfillment of its obligations.
