Ozzy Osbourne sues band mate

Sunday, May 31, 2009

NEW YORK -- Ozzy Osbourne has accused former Black Sabbath band mate Tony Iommi in a New York City court of taking over the band's name and costing him merchandise sales royalties.

Osbourne sued the guitarist earlier this week and issued a statement Friday imploring him to "do the right thing."

Osbourne filed a suit Tuesday in a federal court that says Iommi falsely claimed to have sole rights to Black Sabbath's trademark.
