A lawsuit against Ghost‘s frontman by four former members of the band has been dismissed by a Swedish court, according to reports.
Back in April of last year (2017), it was reported that four previous Ghost members filed a lawsuit against Forge for “missing wages and allowances for several years.”
Simon Soderberg, Mauro Rubinho, Henrik Palm and Martin Hjertstedt, the four Ghost members, were set to sue Forge for 200,000 Swedish Krona, which is roughly equivalent to $22,200 for unpaid compensation.
Fast forward to today, the trial between the frontman and former members of the group was held at Linköping District Court and lasted for six days.
The trial completed Wednesday (October 17), where a 108-page report was released that dismissed the case, and ordered the four former members to pay the legal fees Forge acquired from the case.
As reported by Blabbermouth, Forge was paid by the former member’s $146,000 in legal fees.
The four musicians have three weeks to appeal the court’s ruling, but at this time, it is unclear if they will be taking further action.
Ghost will be supporting Metallica on a 25-date trek across 20 countries. Check out the full list of cities and dates from the 2019 tour below!
