Billy Paul

Best known for his soulful R & B vocals on “Me and Mrs. Jones.”  Although Billy won a Grammy™ for this platinum selling hit, he had not received a royalty report or payment from Philadelphia International Records for almost 25 years. 

The record company argued in the Federal Court in Los Angeles that despite the success of “Me and Mrs. Jones”, Billy actually owed them more than $250,000.00. 

In April 2003, the jury rejected this argument and awarded Billy more than $700,000.00 in damages and interest.  Now, Billy receives regular royalty reports and payments, which include all licensing income.
