ATLANTA - A Florida federal judge erroneously concluded that the estate of an original member of the 1970s pop musical group K.C. and the Sunshine Band lacked statutory standing to sue for infringement of the musical work "Spank," the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Jan. 22 (Ronald Smith Jr. v. Henry Casey, et al., No. 13-12351, 11th Cir.; 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 1139).
