A judge has ended a legal battle between former members of En Vogue by granting two of the singers the right to use the girl group's name.
Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis have won permission to continue touring as En Vogue after taking legal action against the other pair of former members, Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson, alleging they do not have the right to perform using the moniker.
Herron and Ellis demanded they be granted sole use of the name, as well as $1 million in damages, and a judge has now accepted their claim. The singers have won control of the name, but the judge ruled they did not qualify for any financial compensation, according to TMZ.com. All four singers were part of the original line-up of the R&B group.
Terri Ellis started the group and named it, therefore, it's her name NOT A GROUP property. Dawn Robinson decided that SHE should have the name and since she was the person who actually broke the group up twice, I'm glad it turned out the way it has.
There are many women with great voices and when your EGO is more than it should be, there's a cost to pay.
