GUNS N' ROSES Frontman Ordered To Pay Label's Legal Fees In Dispute Over Early Recordings

For the third time in 12 months, Los Angeles-based Cleopatra Records has prevailed in court against GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose, who tried to sue the label in June 2004 for releasing an album entitled "Hollywood Rose: The Roots of Guns N' Roses". The album featured the singer and other members of the infamous rock band during their pre-GN'R days. During the earlier part of the case, Rose lost his bid for an injunction to prevent the label from releasing demos of the band he formed prior to GUNS N' ROSES with ex-guitarist Izzy Stradlin, also known as Jeffrey Isabell. Later, in November 2004 and April 2005, the court made two related rulings in favor of Cleopatra and against Rose on all of his other claims, and entered summary judgment in favor of Cleopatra.

This week, on May 23, 2005, Judge Gary Allen Feess, Judge of the United States District Court for the Central District of California, awarded Cleopatra Records' request for attorneys' fees and costs in the amount of $24,176.38.


Cleopatra Records was represented by Evan S. Cohen and S. Martin Keleti of Cohen and Cohen.
