DEATH ROW RECORDS made headlines yesterday for a court battle headlined by the company's new CEO LARA LAVI. The date in court is now over and details of the proceedings are coming to light.
THE NEW YORK SUPREME COURT County of NEW YORK granted DEATH ROW RECORDS CEO/Pres. LARA LAVI a temporary restraining order against NEW SOLUTIONS FINANCIAL CORP. and CEO RON OVENDEN. The court order will keep outside interests from attempting to act on behalf of DEATH ROW RECORDS.
"I have been very consistent in my message - I am determined to make DEATH ROW about the artists, their music and their fans while staying grounded to assure the company's future, LAVI said in a statement. " Thus, I am taking the necessary legal steps to ensure this outcome."
HIPHOPWIRED.COM reports that the court proceedings ended amicably. "E-1 signed its deal with LARA LAVI, the CEO/President and managing member of WIDEAWAKE DEATH ROW ENTERTAINMENT LLC on the strength of her vision, business sense and goodwill in the entertainment industry," E-1 SVP/Sales Marketing ROB SCARCELLO said. "I look forward to our continued working relationship."
