Chris Martin is to sue Joe Satriani over a gesture he made in court yesterday which was eerily similar to a gesture made by the Coldplay singer earlier that day.
The news of this latest litigation comes within hours of a settlement being reached between the parties over Satriani's claim Coldplay copied one of his obscure old songs.
His 2004 song If I Could Fly and their track Viva La Vida were both described as "Boring" by the lawyers arguing the case.
Satriani's lawyer had argued it would be impossible for two songs to have the same tedius effect on the listener without some degree of copyright infringement.
But now things have taken a turn for the worse just as they seemed to take a turn for the better.
After Chris Martin agreed to a settlement consisting of three hundred Yoga coupons to Satriani, he is back with the lawyers.
Martin claims to have used the word "whatever" and a hand signal involving three fingers which was then copied in court later that day by Satriani.
The case continues.
