"The lawsuit is the latest step in a battle between Shelby and the 5000-member for-profit club. Shelby claims the club has not been involving him in marketing efforts and providing him with financial statements--requirements of a licensing agreement with the club."

You break contract, you suffer the consequences. This IS capitalism.

The man has been all about making a buck his whole life. Once he became famous as a race driver and then as a car manufacturer he's been a hard @ss about getting his way.

If the contract/agreements are as stated in the article, I don't see it as him being a hard ass, just protecting his interest.

Letter of the law and the contract. That's me.

I know it's hard to believe, but people that know me in person think I'm a nice guy.
