Bodeans: Sue Your Television

According to good ol' Yahoo!, the Bodeans are $200,000 richer:

A jury has awarded the BoDeans rock 'n roll group more than $200,000 from a former manager. The Milwaukee Circuit Court jury decided Thursday that Mark McCraw was liable for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duties and improper use of property owned by a company formed by the band. It awarded $185,105 to Keshaw Inc., the firm formed by the band, as well as $17,500 in punitive damages.

...McCraw managed the group for about 20 years, but the relationship became strained during contract negotiations in 1996 as its song "Closer to Free" gained popularity as the theme song for the television show "Party of Five."
Too bad they couldn't settle their differences like the family in "Party of Five." I guess that's the difference between TV and real life. Oh why can't life be more like TV?
