The lawsuit between Queensryche’s Michael Wilton (guitar) and Eddie Jackson (bass) and estranged drummer Scott Rockenfield will go to trial on January 16th, 2024, in Snohomish County Superior Court in Washington State. 

In ‘21, Rockenfield filed a lawsuit against Wilton and Jackson, alleging, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and wrongful discharge.

Four years earlier, Rockenfield took a leave of absence from the band after his fiancée experienced complications during the birth of their son.

Rockenfield says his leave was approved by the band and that he would retain his partnership in Queensryche companies (QR Companies).  

However, a year later Rockenfield was informed of his purported dismissal from the QR Companies.
