Following the lawsuit issues surrounding Journey, Neal Schon said that he tried to fix things privately for a long time before taking legal action against bandmate Jonathan Cain.

Recently, Schon filed a lawsuit against Cain saying that he is being “improperly restricted” with regard to his access to financial records relating to a limited-liability corporation called Nomota that they set up to handle the band’s business affairs. In a Facebook post, Schon declared:

“The only comment I’ll make at this time is it’s all very unfortunate,” he added, “tried for over a year to attain all our corporate records for Nomota with many personal e-mails to Jon as well as many legal letters stating it’s my legal right to see all, but I was left with no choice but to take it legal.”

Schon would only like to gain access to Journey’s American Express card which Cain allegedly set up through Nomota “without Schon’s consent or knowledge, with only Cain as the account holder.”

As per Schon’s lawyers, they “tried to avoid legal action, repeatedly requesting that Cain grant him access to the AMEX account. For many months, Cain and his representatives have represented that Schon would be granted access. But every time Schon contacted AMEX, AMEX informed him that he was still not authorized to access AMEX account records.”

Now, even Schon’s wife Michaele has spoken about the case. She stated that AMEX has informed Schon that Cain had his spouse, Paula White, added to the Journey bank account in 2020 “against Neal’s wishes and per the court agreement.”

Aside from that, another accusation being held against Cain is all about his “mishandling” of the band’s career. Cain is “refusing to respond to booking opportunities; blocking payment to band members, crew and vendors; refusing to execute necessary operating documents,” and keeping Schon from “viewing expenses incurred by Cain and his touring party on band tours.”

“Yeah, it’s a bit deeper than just a card,” Schon posted on Twitter. “There’s much more,” he also added in the original Facebook post, but “since I filed, I’ll be following my attorney’s advice and not speak until we are in court – where I’ll not have a problem at all.”
