After losing their lawsuit against Mick Mars, Mötley Crüe was left having to pay his legal bills.

That means that, for anyone keeping score in their continuing legal struggle, Mötley Crüe gets zero and Mick Mars gets one. At least, that’s what Mars’ attorney says. In an effort to fire the guitarist last year, the band “unjustly refused” to give Mars information on the inner workings of its commercial affairs, a Los Angeles judge ruled.

Judge James C. Chalfant of Los Angeles Superior Court ruled that Mars has a right to reimbursement for his legal expenses and that the band’s failure to give him documents about the band’s business dealings by December 8th “amounts to a refusal,” forcing him to sue them for those documents.

“The demands weren’t onerous. However, Mars was forced to initiate a lawsuit, and it is evident from his decision on Tuesday that manufacturing could not have happened without it.

The judge claims that the band promised that “this was all of the responsive documents” in the band’s possession when it turned over some of the requested documents in early November. This was found to be false when a staggering 1,372 pages of paperwork, including income tax returns and articles of incorporation, were given in December.

Judge Chalfant said, “These documents should have been produced without the need for prodding by Mars.” “It is a refusal if the documents are not produced by December 8.

However, the judge’s decision also states that Mars’ lawsuit is now moot, which means that the guitarist will not be able to get the further ledger entries from 2023 that he filed because they were not on his list of outstanding documents.

Because of this, the band’s attorneys have quickly pointed out that this particular part of the decision amounted to a win for Mötley Crüe, saying that “the court found that the band turned over all the documents to Mars and there is nothing more to do by denying the petition as moot and ending the case.” The band exceeded its duties (to Mars) in every way. That conclusion was rejected by Mars’ attorney, who said that the lawsuit ended only because the band consented and gave in.

Private arbitration is scheduled for later this year to address the “heart of the case,” which, in the words of Mars’ counsel, is whether he was wrongfully fired from the band after declaring that the 2022 tour would be his last. Ankylosing spondylitis, a severe bone ailment, has long plagued Mars, making travel challenging and ultimately leading to his retirement in 2022.
