Save Ferris Ownership Battle Continues To Rage In Federal Court

Powell: Buehler? Buehler?
Though Save Ferris has been dormant for nearly 14 years, the battle between band members and their former lead singer continues to rage inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse.

Save Ferris members Brian Mashburn, Eric Zamora, Bill Uechi, Brian Williams and Evan Kilbourne sued singer Monique Powell in June 2013 for stealing the band's name after she organized a 2013 "reunion concert" at the Orange County Fair without including any other member.

Powell filed a counter lawsuit, denying the allegations, ridiculing the plaintiffs input into the band and claiming they don't own the band name after "having resigned prior to 2003."

During the courthouse battle Powell has incurred a $4,000 sanction for allegedly violating discovery of records obligations.
