The Fray sues manager over copyrights to songs

Posted:
The Fray songwriting duo of Joseph King and Isaac Slade are suing their manager over the copyrights to their songs.

King and Slade wrote the 2005 hits "Over My Head (Cable Car)" and "How to Save a Life," and the current hit "You Found Me." They say manager Gregg Latterman obtained partial ownership of their songs when the band members signed a publishing agreement in July 2005.

A lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court says Latterman told the band members his company, Evanston, Ill.-based Gregg Alan Corp., was getting only a finders fee. Instead, the band alleges Latterman obtained ownership to a portion of the composers' music through the agreement.

Latterman didn't immediately return a message left at his office after business hours.
