Billboard.com is reporting that Queensrÿche members Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Parker Lundgren have defeated a motion from singer Geoff Tate seeking a preliminary injunction that would have kept them from touring and operating under the band’s name.
Tate filed a lawsuit against his former bandmates June 22 in King County Superior Court in the state of Washington over whether he should be awarded the Queensrÿche name after being fired from the group in June.
Nothing says this can’t change, should there be an appeal.
“We are excited that the Washington courts saw what we and the fans have always known, that Queensrÿche is more than any one member,” AGPS Management senior manager Glen Parrish said in a statement.
“We are sorry we had to go to court to show this, but we are determined to bring back the quality product Queensrÿche was known for. We can’t wait to unveil to the fans what [the band creates] next musically.”
AGPS Management is overseeing Queensrÿche affairs after the band was previously managed by Tate’s wife.
