Judas Priest and Rob Halford’s Former Manager Settle Legal Matters

Judas Priest and Rob Halford are rocking in harmony, but behind the scenes there had been some issues between the band’s management and Halford’s longtime rep John Baxter, who took legal action against the group claiming breach-of-contract. However, Law360.com reports that the two sides have settled their differences.

Baxter was let go by Halford in August 2012 and filed suit alleging “fraud, breach of contract and intentional interference with contractual relations.” He also stated that he had failed to receive commissions, salary and expenses dating back to 1992. Baxter sought close to $50 million over the alleged infractions.

However, cooler heads look to have prevailed as U.S. District Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel granted both sides a joint motion to dismiss the case on Thursday (Sept. 26). Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Judas Priest issued their ‘Epitaph’ concert collection earlier this year. The band was reportedly finishing the writing process for their next album in August. They also announced their participation in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas in late February / early March of 2014.
