Mr. Pop History -
Back in April of 1976, four members of the Jackson 5 sued Motown records, seeking a Superior Court judgment granting termination of any contractual responsibilities to the label and an accounting on alleged royalties due them.
The four were Tariano, Sigmund, Esco, Marlon and Michael Jackson. The suit asked the court to order Motown to allow their accountants to audit Motown books covering royalty statements from 1972 to the present (1976).
