Shore and his company Rob Shore & Associates were both named as a co-defendants in the suit, with Fehn alleging that Shore and the aforementioned two band members had secretly established a number of Slipknot-related business entities and had been enriching themselves outside of a general partnership the band had established to divvy up their profits.
Fehn alleged that the trio had also assigned the trademarks for the band to at least one of the LLCs without his knowledge. He filed suit after claiming to have learned about the additional business entities during the initial negotiations for the band’s upcoming album “We Are Not Your Kind” and was fired soon after.
For his part, he is seeking a full accounting of the band’s various business entities to uncover any potential monies owed to him and establish possible damages. He has also been seeking a trust for the Slipknot trademarks that both the alleged general partnership and himself would be able to benefit from going forward.
In the affidavit and memorandum filed by Shore to have the suit dismissed, Fehn‘s role in the band was downplayed as being more of a hired gun of sorts, with Shore‘s camp stating:
“Mr. Fehn performed with Slipknot and received a fee for doing so. He is not a shareholder, owner or member of any business entity he names as a defendant in this action.”
It further went on to dispute the nature of the alleged general partnership and Fehn‘s role in it.
