The lawsuit Cheap Trick's Bun E. Carlos has filed against the group can go forward. says a Chicago judge refused to grant the band's motion to dismiss the case.  In his suit, Carlos, who's real name is Brad Carlson, claims the other Cheap Trick members owe him hundreds of thousands of dollars from agreements stating that he's still a "full member" of the band and will still be compensated even if he doesn't perform with them. 

In their request for a dismissal, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson, and Robin Zander claimed Carlos' complaint doesn't provide enough specific details, but the judge disagreed.
