Kid Rock Rolls In Court
December 7, 2007 at 5:33 AM (PT)
A copyright infringement case against ATLANTIC recording artist KID ROCK has been dismissed. The lawsuit, filed by NEW ORLEANS musician TROY LANDRY in 2004, alleged that ROCK and co-writers UNCLE KRACKER, JOHN TRAVIS and KENNY OLSON copied portions of two songs written by LANDRY when the four co-wrote the hit, "Somebody's Gotta Feel This."
LOUISIANA U.S.District Judge MARY ANN VIAL LEMMON dismissed the lawsuit in its entirety. "Judge LEMMON did the right thing in dismissing this case," noted KID ROCK personal attorney MICHAEL NOVAK. "It was utterly meritless. Unfortunately the way our justice system works, anybody can sue anyone for any reason, and successful artists tend to attract these groundless claims. But we are elated the system worked here. Justice is served."
