More Recent News on Jeanette Jurado
In August of 2003 Jurado, Curless and Moneymaker had a brief reunion concert at the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles, California. Members of Safe Sax, including music director/guitarist Steve Fansler, were part of the live band Exposé used at this performance.
In 2004 Jeanette Jurado released a single titled "Shadow of Love" for the Days of Life's TV show soundtrack.
In September 2006, Jurado reunited with Exposé members Gioia Bruno and Ann Curless. The members of Exposé toured extensively through 2007 and 2008. The group continues to perform at special events throughout the United States, including venues such as Epcot and Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den.
In December 2007, Jurado along with group members Bruno, Curless, Moneymaker, promoter Paradise Artists, and Walking Distance Entertainment were named as defendants in a lawsuit by Crystal Entertainment & Filmworks (I & II). At issue was the trademark licensing agreement for the rights to use the name Exposé.
The first case was dismissed without prejudice. The second one went to trial. During the process both Paradise Artists and Moneymaker were dismissed as defendants, and a counter suit was filed against the plaintiffs. On May 26, 2009, the court ruled in favor of the defendants on most counts, finding them only guilty of a contractual breach with the plaintiffs. The court also ruled that the plaintiffs did not prove ownership of the mark, and established that due to the line-up being the same since 1986 (with Moneymaker only replacing Bruno because of her illness) and clear identification of the group members on the albums and with touring, the defendants showed common-law proof of ownership and the "[consumer] goodwill associated with Exposť was with the members". The court awarded Jurado, Bruno, and Curless exclusive rights to the trademark.
Currently She continues to be on Tour with Exposé, as the group has performed at various venues since 2007. They should continue to tour well into 2011.
