The Massachusetts Appeals Court has ruled that a legal malpractice claim brought by representatives of Prince’s estate against an attorney and his firm is governed by Massachusetts, not Minnesota, law.

Following the April 2016 death of Prince, whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson, sound engineer George Ian Boxill sought to release five of the late musician’s recorded songs in his possession, according to the opinion. Boxill partnered with a distribution company, Rogue Music Alliance LLC, to commercialize the five previously unreleased songs that were known as the “Deliverance Recordings,” according to the appeals court’s Aug. 30 opinion.
