December 31, 1970: Having quit the band in April, Paul McCartney filed a suit against the rest of The Beatles to dissolve their partnership. According to the court documents, McCartney's main reason for wanting to legally break up the group stemmed from the decision taken by the others to to appoint Rolling Stones manager Allan Klein as their manager. McCartney didn't trust Klein and had wanted his new in-laws, Lee and John Eastman, to look after the group's financial affairs.
The suit took more than four years of legal wrangling and court hearings; The Beatles would be officially disbanded in January 1975.
