Geoff Tate on Queensryche Settlement: 'I'm Just Waiting for the Paperwork to Be Dry'
Geoff Tate has been talking with 98.7 the Gater in Florida (via Blabbermouth) about the ongoing legal battle between him and his former band mates.

As Tate notes, they are hoping to have the dispute settled by the end of the month:

"Actually, we're in settlement talks right now," Tate said. "I hope it doesn't [go to trial]. I'm kind of hoping that it will all be settled by the end of the month."

Regarding how the settlement will turn out, the singer noted:

"Either way, it's in my favor. So I'm just waiting for the paperwork to be dry."

King County Superior Court Judge Beth Andrus recently signed a new stipulation and order continuing trial date, allowing the parties three more weeks to come to an agreement over the use of the Queensryche name and its associated trademarks. If an agreement can't be reached during that period, then the case will go to trial on March 3rd.
