Troutman Bros. Grand Finale (II)
Highest Court Court of Appeals of Ohio
Year Ended 2010
Plaintiffs Spouse of Artist(s)
Defendants Estate of Artist(s)
Other Troutman, Larry
Troutman, Roger
Zapp
Short Description Plaintiff was the widow of Larry Troutman, guitarist in the band Zapp, who previously murdered his own brother, Roger Troutman, lead singer in Zapp, and then subsequently committed suicide. An immense bankruptcy case emerged from this (see "Troutman Bros. Grand Finale (I)"), but here Plaintiff sued Larry's estate to declare ownership of copyrights to works composed by her husband. The court held, however, that all of Larry's rights belong to the estate until administration, and termination/renewal rights will not vest in Plaintiff and her heirs for some time. Determining ownership requires administering Troutman's assets. - LSW
