Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis have won permission to continue touring as En Vogue after taking legal action against the other pair of former members, Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson, alleging they do not have the right to perform using the moniker.
Herron and Ellis demanded they be granted sole use of the name, as well as $1 million in damages, and a judge has now accepted their claim. The singers have won control of the name, but the judge ruled they did not qualify for any financial compensation, according to TMZ.com. All four singers were part of the original line-up of the R&B group.
