James Murphy And DFA Records File Lawsuit Against Fellow Co-Founder

Written by Mike Hohnen on March 5, 2013

Fearless leader of LCD Soundsystem and producer James Murphy now has the support of the record label he co-founded in a lawsuit against a fellow co-founder Tim Goldsworthy. Initally, it seemed that Murphy was on a solo crusade, but other members of DFA Records have stepped up, also demanding Goldsworthy pay up.

According to Pitchfork, Murphy filed a lawsuit against Goldsworthy with the Manhattan Civil Supreme Court last week, citing “attempts to amicably resolve this matter were rebuffed”, “breach of contract” and “unjust enrichment.” Murphy was seeking $93,899 from his business partner, who has apparently done wrong by many who were involved with founding the record label.

DFA have now weighed in, claiming that Goldsworthy was guilty of “failing to perform services he was paid for, owing outstanding loans, improperly using the company credit card and making unauthorized withdrawals from its bank accounts.”

Along with Jonathan Galkin, Goldsworthy and Murphy founded DFA records in 2001. Despite leaving the company’s homeland of New York for the UK three years ago without so much as a heads-up to his workmates, Goldsworthy still considers himself part of the label.
