Judge Blasts Universal in Eminem Ruling | Indie-Music.com

Universal Music has just been handed an epic smackdown by the California judge presiding over a battle with producers of many hit Eminem recordings. In a decision that is sure to have tongues wagging throughout the music industry, the judge suggests that Universal has been “bamboozling” and attempting to “dupe” him into overlooking an issue that could mean substantial money for the plaintiffs in the case and perhaps musicians throughout the country. Many observers have been closely watching this lawsuit brought by FBT Productions against Universal Music for many years.
