NICKELBACK are being sued by their former management company, Amar Management, for wrongful termination of a contract between the two parties and failure to pay commissions, disbursements, and fees to Amar earned as a result of services rendered. NICKELBACK signed a contract with Amar Management in March of 1996 and continued to be represented by the company through the recording of the group's two independent CDs and their Roadrunner Records debut, The State. Amar's suit, which was filed in British Columbia, contends that the management company was responsible for all aspects of the development of the group's career and played a fundamental role in their success and discovery. The suit sights numerous breaches of the original agreement and asks for compensation and the return of monies held in trust by NICKELBACK but never paid to the management company.
