Lawyers for the Denver-based band The Fray are set to appear in federal court to continue the band's battle with a former manager.
The band alleges its former manager Gregg Latterman failed to disclose that his company obtained ownership to a portion of the band's music when the band signed a publishing agreement in 2005. The band's hits include "How to Save a Life," released in 2006. Latterman filed counterclaims alleging breach of contract. He says The Fray owes his company more than $750,000 in commission and expenses.
He says The Fray tried to end his management contract early and pressured him to accept concessions including smaller commissions as the band's popularity grew.
