Update: MIKE PORTNOY Threatened Legal Action Against Former DREAM THEATER Bandmates

Ronald S. Beinstock, an attorney for progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER, has contacted BLABBERMOUTH.NET to make it clear that there is currently “no pending litigation” between the current members of DREAM THEATER and the band’s former drummer, Mike Portnoy.

In a letter to BLABBERMOUTH.NET dated Tuesday, September 20, Bienstock wrote, “On or around April 27, 2011, Mr. Portnoy filed a ‘Notice With Summons.’ This document is not a formal complaint. Further, the document was never served on any of the named defendants, rendering it moot. There is no pending litigation between DREAM THEATER and Mr. Portnoy.
