Jimmie Rodgers vs. Record Label
Highest Court S.D. New York
Year Ended 1990
Plaintiffs Rodgers, Jimmie
Defendants Levy, Morris
Roulette Records
Other No Other parties on file
Short Description Plaintiff is one of three well-known musicians of a similar name, along with the early 20th century "hillbilly" singer whose spelling is identical and the African-American blues artist named Jimmy Rogers. In this case, Rodgers sued Roulette Records, his former record label, for drastic underpayment (in essence nonpayment) of royalties according to contracts written in the 1960s. While many of Plaintiff's actions were blocked by statutes of limitation, recent unpaid royalties were not. After litigation began, Defendant tendered $9,000, which the District Court counted towards the $10,584 award it granted for the immediately preceding six years not blocked by statutes of limitation. - LSW
