Lonely Boys, Too Many Managers
Highest Court Sixth Circuit
Year Ended 2007
Plaintiffs Music Manager(s)
Defendants Music Manager(s)
Other Los Lonely Boys
Short Description Self-proclaimed "Texican" artists, Los Lonely Boys, employed Plaintiff as their band's manager in Nashville in 1996. After the Boys met music producers who criticized Plaintiff's management, they demanded an accounting, which Plaintiff failed to provide, prompting them to repudiate the contract and employ their father as new management back in Texas, with Defendant as their booking agent. Plaintiff thought third parties were responsible, but failed to bring suit within the applicable statute of limitations period after learning of their breach. For this reason, the trial court dismissed his complaint. The appellate court disagreed, saying Plaintiff may have known of the interference but did not know the identity of the parties that induced the Boys breach. His action, said the court, only accrued upon learning who had done so, which occurred in 2003, after reading an article about the band, within the statute of limitations period. It is possible he should have known earlier (particularly after deposing the Boys' father in 2002), but this discussion is reserved for the trier of fact below. - LSW
