Neal Schon has issued a statement on his lawsuit against Jonathan Cain related to an American Express credit card belonging to Nomota, the LLC Journey uses for its business dealings.
As previously reported, Schon filed a lawsuit against Cain in the Superior Court of the State of California. Per the documents filed on behalf of Schon, the guitarist is requesting access to and records for an American Express credit card that belongs to the LLC Journey uses for its business dealings. Schon alleges Cain has been in control of the credit card. Despite requests for access to the credit card and its records, Schon has been denied.
The documents state, “Schon and Defendant Cain are the 50-50 owners, members, and managers of an entity known as Nomota, LLC (“Nomota”), through which Journey operates… The AMEX account is a Journey account, not a personal account of Cain. On information and belief, millions in Journey funds have flowed through this AMEX account.”
Additionally, Schon’s filing levies other allegations against Cain. Among them are “…refusing to respond to booking opportunities, blocking payment to band members, crew, and vendors, refusing to execute necessary operating documents, and in other ways as well.”
Schon shared via Facebook, “The only comment I’ll make at this time is it’s all very unfortunate and [I] tried for over a year to attain all our corporate records for Nomota with many personal e-mails to Jon, as well as many legal letters stating it’s my legal right to see all, but I was left with no choice but to take it legal.”
He added, “There’s much more … since I filed, I’ll be following my attorney’s advice and not speak until we are in court where I’ll not have a problem at all. It is what it is.”
As of publishing, Cain has yet to comment publicly on the lawsuit.
