Mötley Crüe's Neil Sees Lawsuit Shot Down, Again

Vince Neil will reportedly not be able to take his former lawyer to court over what the singer sees as the mishandling of his bankruptcy case.

The Associated Press reports that a Los Angeles judge has refused to reinstate the lawsuit that Neil had hoped to bring against attorney Joseph Eisenberg. The Mötley Crüe frontman reportedly charged that Eisenberg's counsel cost him "a large amount of money in settlement." The singer was reportedly claiming professional negligence and seeking unspecified damages.

The case was derailed in May when Superior Court Judge Alan Buckner dismissed the suit. Neil's attorney, David Cordrey, reportedly went before the same judge in an effort to revive the suit.

However, Buckner shot down the move telling Cordrey, "This motion is utterly without merit," according to the AP.
