Burnley says in court documents that he fired guitarist Aaron Fincke and bassist Mark Klepaski via email after learning his bandmates had struck an agreement with Hollywood Records to issue the remix.
The Citizens' Voice of Wilkes-Barre reports that Burnley seeks at least $250,000 and the exclusive right to the Breaking Benjamin name. Fincke and Klepaski deny Burney's claims. A Luzerne County judge has ordered arbitration.
The band's management declined to comment to the newspaper.
