Ronettes' Profits Limited by 1963 Contract

The New York Court of Appeals denied a pioneering "girl group" trio, the Ronettes, millions of dollars in profits from the synchronization of their work Thursday.

In a 5-0 opinion, the court said the members of the group are bound by the terms of a contract they signed without benefit of counsel when they were obscure teen-agers from Spanish Harlem.

Bands signed to bad contracts will be stuck in those contracts.
