As previously reported, Chris Fehn was kicked out of Slipknot after filing a lawsuit against Corey Taylor and M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan for allegedly operating and making money on Slipknot affiliated businesses behind his back. The band’s business manager Robert Shore, who was also named in the suit, then responded by filing an affidavit and memorandum to have the case dismissed. Now, The Blast are reporting that Taylor and Crahan are trying to get a judge to throw the suit out of court.
