The folks at King & Ballow could make a juicy business line out of this "non-disc" recording stuff...
Three months after suing Capitol Records on behalf of Kenny Rogers, the downtown-based firm has teamed with former Doobie Brother Michael McDonald to take on Warner Bros. Records. As in the Rogers case, the disputed issue centers on the alleged nonpayment of royalties from nontraditional recordings such as downloads and ringtones.
The Nashville School of Law will early next month honor two veterans of the local legal scene with its Recognition Dinner Honoree and Distinguished Faculty Award.
Set to receive the first of those two honors on June 3 is Bob Ballow, a 1963 graduate of NSL (on the right in our photo) who joined forces with Frank King in 1969 and has since helped build a firm with nationally recognized media law expertise.
Gullett Sanford Robinson & Martin employment and labor law attorney Trevor Howell will receive the 2011 Distinguished Faculty Award. Howell has taught at NSL since 1988 and regularly serves as instructor for regional Continuing Legal Education seminars in employment law.
“The collective accomplishments of these two revered attorneys are a perfect example of the founding principles of Nashville School of Law,” said Judge Joe Loser Jr., Dean of the Nashville School of Law. “I am proud to be a part of a community that continually produces excellence in the legal community at large.”
