Legendary for his Wall of Sound approach in the studio, Phil Spector has allegedly skipped making twice-yearly royalty payments to the aforementioned artists. The suit claims that "despite due demand, Spector has wrongfully refused and continues wrongfully to refuse to account to or to pay plaintiffs the amounts owed."
The documents, obtained by TMZ.com, insist that "each of the plaintiffs has been injured as a result of Spector's breaches of contract or, in the case of the Ronettes, of a stipulated judgment in such amount as they shall prove at trial."
Spector is no stranger to the courtroom, spending much of 2007 on trial for the 2003 murder of actress Lana Clarkson, who died at his California home. Ruled a mistrial last September when jurors couldn't agree unanimously on a guilty verdict, the case is set to be retried on September 29.
