Carey goes back to court over album

LOS ANGELES, July 14 (UPI) -- The prolonged legal battle over the 1999 album "Thank God I Found You" is taking singer Mariah Carey back to court, reports Celebrity Justice.

The dispute relates to the claim of songwriting legend Seth Swirsky and his partner Warryn Campbell that they came up with the tune.

Two years ago, a judge dismissed the lawsuit Swirsky filed against Carey, but an appeals court now says Swirsky and his partner can go ahead and sue.

"When I first heard her song on the radio, I pulled over to the side of the road, and I just couldn't believe what I was hearing," Swirsky said. "It was my song. I have to defend my songs. My songs are like my children."

A jury will now decide who is right.
