Killers Ex-Manager Files 16 Million Dollar Lawsuit

Braden Merrick, the fellow who discovered The Killers, has recently filed suit in Las Vegas. He's claiming that the band breached their contract when they severed ties with him. He's also claiming that The Killers have grossed in excess of $25 million all because of his promotions.

Brandon Flowers says of the band's relationship with Merrick:

"Braden was a rep for Warner Bros. and he was just looking for bands. Las Vegas was in his territory, so he was checking out," Flowers said. "He wanted to sign us to Warner Bros. initially. He got us some showcases, and they didn't want us. He stayed with us and ended up being our manager until we got a record deal, and he's still here."
