Sarah McLachlan's lawyer wraps up arguments in court case
THE ARTS REPORT
VANCOUVER - Sarah McLachlan's lawyer wrapped up her final submissions yesterday in a long-drawn-out legal over McLachlan's breakthrough album, Touch.
Darryl Neudorf, a former band member for the group 54-40, maintains he helped Sarah McLachlan write four songs on her first album a decade ago. He's suing her for an album credit and monetary compensation.
McLachlan's lawyer says Neudorf's work on the Touch album wasn't enough to warrant being credited as a co-producer or co-songwriter.
The case has been lodged in a B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver for more than seven months now.
The Sarah McLachlan trial has been going on for more than seven months.
Neudorf's lawyer gets a last reply to Conkie's statements before the trial wraps up today. The judge isn't expected to deliver a verdict until the fall.
