I'm happy about that because the Newsboys have been together for a long time and then all of a sudden about 10 to 15 years later a new group called New Boyz comes into the scene?

To be perfectly honest I have not heard of either of these groups. I understand how it could be misleading. But I do see the difference in the names the Newsboys are spreading the news about the gospel and the Newboyz are clearly stating about their gangster thug lifestyle clearly by the spelling of their groups name. I don't believe either should being sueing the other I believe God will work it out the Newsboys will still be spreading the gospel while the newboyz will eventually be looking for a new job

The Bible they claim to follow condemns what they did.

The law suit will be thrown out.
