NIN lawsuit update - Trent wins!

Cue jokes about getting what you deserve - Trent Reznor had a very big day in court yesterday when a New York jury awarded him 2.95 million in damages against his former manager, John Malm. That award doesn't include interest, which will spike that number higher. Trent also gets control of all NIN trademarks back, which is of significant consequence.

Trent testified the same day that OL, SoF, and I saw NIN at Hammerstein Ballroom. It was a big week for Trent: suing his former manager, playing two big shows in NYC (get the feeling the tour was scheduled to coincide with the trial?), and on the day that followed his testimony/asskicking Hammerstein show, Trent turned 40.
