Judge Tosses part Of Mike Love's Lawsuit
FIRST COAST NEWS "A judge has dismissed part of a $2 million lawsuit by Beach Boy Mike Love that claims ex-bandmate Al Jardine illegally used the name of the surf-music kings."
"Superior Court Judge James R. Dunn threw out claims of breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty Wednesday but gave Love's lawyer a chance to amend the case before it goes to trial Nov. 6."
"The lawsuit claims that Love, 65, is the only person legally allowed to perform under the name 'Beach Boys,' but Jardine, 64, had toured with 'knockoff bands' using names such as 'Beach Boys Family & Friends.'"
