Judge blocks new movie about Lynyrd Skynyrd
    2017-August-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SURVIVING members of Lynyrd Skynyrd won a permanent injunction blocking the production and distribution of a movie depicting the 1977 plane crash that killed the rock band’s lead singer, Ronnie Van Zant.

In a decision made public Monday, U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet in Manhattan said “Street Survivors: The True Story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash,” based on recollections of former drummer Artimus Pyle, violated a 1988 consent order governing the use of the Lynyrd Skynyrd name.

The lawsuit had been brought against Pyle and co-defendant Cleopatra Records Inc. by lead guitarist Gary Rossington, lead singer and Van Zant’s brother, Johnny Van Zant, and heirs of Ronnie Van Zant and the late guitarists Steve Gaines and Allen Collins.

Sweet issued his 64-page decision after a non-jury trial July 11-12. Lawyers for Cleopatra and the plaintiffs did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Pyle could not be reached for comment, and, according to court records, did not hire a lawyer.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is known for such songs as “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird,” which were recorded before its touring plane crashed in Mississippi on Oct. 20, 1977. The crash killed Ronnie Van Zant, Gaines and four others. Twenty people, including Pyle, survived. (SD-Agencies)
