Court declines to hear lawsuit against Tim McGraw
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A federal court has declined to hear Curb Records' lawsuit against Tim McGraw and Big Machine Records, another setback in the label's legal fight with the country star.
A U.S. District Court judge in Nashville, Tenn., signed an order administratively closing the case until a decision over copyright of music McGraw recorded is made in a lawsuit filed in Tennessee state court.
Curb initially filed a lawsuit over copyright and breach of contract issues and tried to bar McGraw from signing with Big Machine Records.
McGraw has countersued, and a judge allowed him to make new music with a different label for the first time in his more than 20 years as a recording artist.
He released that album, "Two Lanes of Freedom," earlier this year.
