The Fray boss hits back in lawsuit

Gregg Latterman claims The Fray owe his company more than 750,000 dollars

The Fray's former manager has claimed the band owes his company more than 750,000 dollars in commission and expenses.

A lawsuit is pending in federal court in Denver against Gregg Latterman over copyright to songs, with The Fray alleging Latterman failed to disclose that his management company obtained ownership to a portion of the band's music when songwriters Joseph King and Isaac Slade signed a publishing agreement in 2005.

Latterman, who managed the band's early career, disputed the claims in documents filed on Monday and filed counterclaims alleging breach of contract and fiduciary duty, also claiming The Fray tried to end his management contract early and pressured him to accept concessions including smaller commissions as the band's popularity grew.

The band's hits include How To Save A Life and Over My Head (Cable Car).
