The electronic duo LMFAO is now appearing at a trial before the California Labor Commissioner, and the dispute with ex-management firm RPMGRP over $7 million in money allegedly owed is exploring the finer nuances of the "remix."

To quickly review what has happened until this point, LMFAO members Stefan Kendal Gordy (Redfoo) and Skyler Austen Gordy (SkyBlu) were first sued in March 2012 by RPMGRP, a firm run by Rene McLean. The lawsuit alleged that after LMFAO skyrocketed toward success with hits like "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It," the electronic duo "thanked their managers who took them 'from 0 to 60' by throwing them under the tour bus (i.e. firing them).
