    A Day to Remember have issued a statement on the resolution of their lawsuit with Victory Records:

    As many of you know, more than 5 years ago we filed a lawsuit against Victory Records seeking freedom and resolution on several issues we had with them. For the past 2 weeks we have been in court arguing our case. Yesterday, the jury came back with a unanimous verdict in the trial granting us that freedom and resolution. Thank you to the fan base for supporting us through this difficult time, we couldn’t have done this without you. This isn’t just a victory for us but also a victory for every band wronged over the years. Right doesn’t always win, but yesterday it did.

    Love that they squeezed the word "victory" in there a couple of times. Good for these dudes.

    Glad to finally see closure in this case. Talk about dragging something out... but $4mil is a chunk of cash worth dragging out..

    Doubt they see even an eighth of that after legal fees.

    Depending on the judgment that was awarded, Victory could be responsible for paying their legal fees as well.

    Exactly...and it seems like they have the right people who would take that into account...

    Sadly, I don't think they have nowhere near the resources A Day To Remember had for that lawsuit.

    No doubt, but perhaps the precedent here can help. I can dream at least!
