Brawl detailed in White Stripes' lawsuit

DETROIT, June 14 (UPI) -- A civil lawsuit has shed light behind-the-scenes of Detroit's garage rock scene, including details of a brawl and possible illicit business dealings.

Jack White of the White Stripes and Jason Stollsteimer of the Von Bondies detailed their 2003 nightclub brawl in court as part of a suit lodged against White's band for unpaid royalties to a former producer, the Detroit News reports.

Producer Jim Diamond of Ghetto Recorders is suing the band, claiming his assistance on their early recordings entitles him to a share of the band's financial success.

The News reports White Stripes' drummer Meg White testified that Diamond did work as a co-producer on the band's first album, but she said he had been paid an hourly wage and was not entitled to further compensation.

Jack White dismissed Stollsteimer's accusation that he had stabbed a knife into White's front door with a note attached. Stollsteimer called the accusation "a laughable lie."
