It’s not uncommon for the NFL to get sued these days. But the latest lawsuit comes from someone who might have a solid case behind him.
According to TMZ Sports, musician Bobby Nunn is suing the NFL over his use of the song “Rocket 2 U,” which he wrote and produced for American band The Jets in 1988. The lawsuit alleges the NFL and NBC Universal used the song without his permission several times.
Nunn claims he never licensed the song for use by the NFL. He said he contacted both companies about it, but they both denied any trespassing on his property.
Nunn provided evidence of the claim in the form of a screenshot of a Packers-Vikings game on Sunday Night Football last year. He said the song could be heard during the show at that time.
Since the 1970s, Bobby Nunn has helped produce songs that have reached the highest peaks on the American charts. He has worked for over a dozen labels as well as iconic singers such as Rick James, Charlie Wilson and Philip Bailey.
Unfortunately, Nunn is still going to face an uphill battle trying to sue the NFL like this.
No matter how strong his case, the NFL may possibly extend the legal process until he is in a wheelchair.
What do you think of the allegations? Does Bobby Nunn have business here?
