Producer Settles Breach Of Contract Suit With Old Business Partners
Scott Storch will keep his music publishing rights as part of a settlement with his former business partners who accused him of relapsing on cocaine and backing out of their music deal.
Seth and Brad Cohen, the founders of the CCS Music Group, asked a judge to toss their $4 million lawsuit against Storch for fraud and breach of contract in favor of a settlement, court papers obtained by BOSSIP show. A judge dismissed the case May 3, and the Cohen brothers can’t appeal the decision.
The suit was ugly right from the beginning: the Cohen Brothers accused Storch of going back on drugs even though they’d agreed he’d stay clean in exchange for the Cohens’ leasing a Rolls Royce Ghost for him.
In response, Storch’s girlfriend, Florence Mirsky claimed in court papers that the Cohen Brothers threatened to hire a “mafia hit man” to kill them when Storch balked at signing a deal with the men that he believed was a bad one.
