Quincy Jones, producer of a number of Michael Jackson’s best-selling albums, won a $9.4 million jury award against MJJ Productions and Sony. The producer accused accountants of falsely characterizing income from record sales in order to avoid paying him royalties. After the verdict, Jones said, “This lawsuit was never about Michael, it was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio. I view it not only as a victory for myself personally, but for artists' rights overall."
