Ex Manager Sues The Killers for Breach of Contract



The former manager of The Killers has filed a federal lawsuit against the band members and their lawyer, seeking $16 million for what he calls breach

The band members and their lawyer were definitely surprised with the federal lawsuit filed by former manager Braden Merrick, which is aimed at suing The Killers for breach of contract. Filed the suit Tuesday Feb 21st, 2006 in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, Merrick alleges that he was fired last May despite the fact that his contract was supposedly run through 2007.

"As soon as he made them superstars they decided to stop paying him," Howard King, Merrick's Los Angeles lawyer said. "He's entitled to a percentage of their income for his services as a manager and a producer." And thus, Merrick is seeking $16 million for what he calls breach of contract.

Responding to the lawsuit in a shock, the Killers' lawyer Robert Reynolds commented "The only statement the band would like to make at this time is that the claims alleged by Mr. Merrick are absolutely meritless and we intend to defend this action vigorously."
