TRAVIS TRITT has sued his record company CATEGORY 5 RECORDS for $10 million in damages, claiming that his career has suffered "irreparable damage" because of the company's "false, unfair and deceptive acts."
ALL ACCESS has been following this story since the HARTFORD COURANT reported that CATEGORY 5 RECORDS Pres./CEO RAY TERMINI and his CONNECTICUT-based HAVEN HEALTHCARE
were being investigated by the CONNECTICUT Attorney General’s Office. (NET NEWS 11/20)
In a lawsuit filed TUESDAY (12/11) in U.S. District Court in NASHVILLE, TRITT charged that he was induced to sign a contract with CATEGORY 5 in DECEMBER 2005 based on false promises, including TERMINI's assertions that he was "a man of substantial means and wealth" who would pour his personal fortune into the company. TRITT wants to sever all ties to the record label and is asking the court to appoint a receiver to take over management of the company, to ensure his financial interests are protected.
