The estate of Jacques Levy is seeking $7.25 million of the nearly half a billion Bob Dylan reportedly took in when he recently sold the publishing rights to his massive song catalog. The suit contends that Levy, deserves that much because he co-wrote a number of Dylan songs in the 1970's. Dylan's legal representatives say Levy was paid all he was due in royalties for songs that include Hurricane, Black Diamond Bay, Isis and Joey on the 1976 album Desire.

Levy, who was also a theatre director and a clinical psychologist and served as the director of Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue tour, died in 2004.
