Geffen Battles Love

11/09/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

David Geffen can't get enough Love -- Courtney Love, that is. The entertainment titan's Geffen Records has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against Love and fellow Hole band member Eric Erlandson, claiming that under a 1992 contract the group still owes the company five more albums. According to a suit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, attorneys for Love and Erlandson rejected the contract, citing a California labor law that limits personal services contracts to seven years. Geffen, who is seeking unspecified damages and an injunction barring Hole from recording for any other label, contends that recording contracts are not personal services agreements -- and that, in any event, the 1992 Hole-Geffen deal was extended by amendment in 1997.
