Phil Collins Wins Lawsuit

Phil Collins won his judgement against Earth, Wind and Fire's trumpeter and saxophonist Rahmlee Michael Davies and Louis Saterfield today. A British high court ruled that the singer had overpaid the musicians in royalties of $384,000 from his album, Serious Hits Live. The court ruled that the two musicians would not have to pay back the money though and reduced the total amount that Collins was seeking to $192,000. Justice Jonathan Parker said that the monies would be deducted from future royalties of the Serious Hits Live album. Davies and Saterfied were featured on such Collins albums, "Face Value" and No Jacket Required. The hornsmen were prominently featured on the hit "Sussudio" from the No Jacket Required album.
