Posted by on October 17, 2018

A Swedish court has dismissed the lawsuit against Ghost frontman Tobias Forge by four of his former bandmates Simon Söderberg (Alpha), Mauro Rubino (Air), Henrik Palm (Eather) and Martin Hjertstedt (Earth). Forge was sued back in April 2017 for roughly $200,000, as his former Nameless Ghouls claimed missing wages and allowances for several years.

Linkoping News reports, the trial was held in Linköping District Court and lasted for six days and at 11 o’clock on Wednesday CST, the case was officially dismissed. Additionally, the hearing resulted in the plaintiff’s owing Forge over SEK 1.3 Million, which is equivalent to over USD 145,000. Forge has previously expressed that Ghost was more of a solo project and the rest were hired musicians.

Ghost was always a mysterious band, which was known for Papa Emeritus and now as Cardinal Copia as the band’s leader with his Nameless Ghouls. Tobias Forge was forced to unmask himself and became public knowledge when the lawsuit leaked online revealing his name and the identity of the former Nameless Ghouls.  

Linkoping News has also revealed the decision was made after the 108-page document. Check out the full story here.
