Federal Appeals Court Upholds Dismissal of Lawsuit Brought by Former Band Members

Los Angeles - A Federal Appeals Court has unanimously upheld the dismissal of the lawsuit brought by former session musicians Bob Daisley and Lee Kerslake. The lawsuit, filed against Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in 1998, had sought royalties and credits on Ozzy's classic studio albums, Blizzard of Oz and Diary of a Madman. The lawsuit was dismissed this last year by the United States District Court in Los Angeles, and this week the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld the dismissal, ruling that Ozzy does not owe any royalties or credit to the former session musicians, who were let go in 1981. Since their initial release twenty-three years ago, these two classic Ozzy records have sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

Ozzy Osbourne stated: "The truth always prevails."

Orin Snyder, the attorney for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, stated: "This decision is a complete vindication of Ozzy and Sharon and confirms what we have been saying all long - that this worthless lawsuit was a waste of the courts' precious time.”
