Frank Miller is currently being sued by his long-time manager Mark Lichtman for breach of contract. Lichtman is seeking unpaid management fees totaling over $1 million. The lawsuit was first filed in July in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming he is owed 10% of Miller's earnings reaching back to the 1980s. 

Lichtman states that he and his company, the Lichtman Goup, managed Miller's various comic book, television, and film deals from then to August 2014, which would include Sin City, 300, The Spirit, and the various sequels to The Dark Knight Returns. Lichtman says things were going fine until Silenn Thomas entered Miller's life in 2006. 

"Thomas began to exert influence over Miller, including the execution of a scheme to deliberately disrupt the contractual relationship that Miller had with Lichtman as his long-term manager," writes attorney Kenneth Keller.

Lichtman is also suing Thomas for "intentional interference with contract and prospectic economic advantage." Lichtman's case might be stronger if he hadn't lost his copy of the original contract though.
