Busta Rhymes, L.O.N.S. Sued Over '91 Song

Busta Rhymes, L.O.N.S. Sued Over '91 SongBusta and members of the Leaders Of the New School face a lawsuit for a song they performed 19 years ago.
Busta Rhymes and other former members of the Leaders Of the New  School are being sued for copyright infringement on a song they made in 1991. 19 years after the song released, executives at the Drive-In Music Company say the track, "Case of the P.T.A." on the group's debut album is an illegal sample of the Dyke and The Blazers song "Let A Woman Be A Woman, Let A Man Be A Man." The company explained that it had no clue of the song's existence until recently.

In addition to suing the group, Drive-In Music Company is also filing suit against the group's former home, Elektra Records.
The lawsuit asks the judge to place a permanent injunction on the sale of the album and insists that copies of the CD be removed from shelves.
