Metallica's Lars Ulrich Sued By Personal AssistantMetallica's Lars Ulrich's former personal assistant has filed a lawsuit against the drummer claiming that he is owed years of unpaid overtime.

Steven Wiig, who said he worked tirelessly when the drummer was at home and on tour, is seeking damages for alleged state and federal labour violations.

He has also sued Ulrich for a breach of oral contract and continuing wages, a lawsuit filed at Marin Superior Court showed.
