Pop duo Hall & Oates get into ugly legal drama with each other

Daryl Hall had requested a temporary restraining order against his former bandmate the previous Thursday, and Nashville Chancery Court granted it the following day.

The well-known musical pair Hall & Oates are embroiled in a legal dispute; however, it's unknown if "Privates Eyes" are engaged in the matter.

Last Thursday, Daryl Hall, 77, filed a lawsuit and requested a restraining order against John Oates, 75, his musical partner.

From the middle of the 1970s through the 1980s, the group — one of the most popular duos in rock history—released a number of songs, such as "Rich Girl," "You Make My Dreams (Come True)," and "Maneater."

According to online court documents, Hall filed the lawsuit in Nashville, Tennessee's Chancery Court, addressing "contract/debt." Because the case is sealed, the specifics of the disagreement are unknown. Hall submitted an application for a restraining order on a temporary basis in addition to the lawsuit, and it was granted on Friday. Oates got summoned on Monday along with his trust.

They met at Temple University in Philadelphia, according to their website, when they were both students. They have collaborated on 21 albums, and in 2003 they were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 2014 they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Along with starting separate careers as solo artists, the duo has never formally broken up and is currently on separate tours.
