In December 2011, Jack Russell, having recovered from his health issues, obtained a licensing agreement from Great White, and formed a new incarnation of Great White with a brand-new lineup under the name of "Jack Russell's Great White." The other band members have voiced their strong objection to this move and said that "Jack Russell does not have the right to start his own Great White or use the name without our names in the lineup. We will litigate any promoter that books ‘Jack Russell's Great White’ or uses any logo featuring the name Great White." In September 2013, the parties finally reached an agreement in Federal Court that legally Jack Russell will turn all his rights to the "Great White" name over to Kendall, Lardie and Desbrow. They in turn leased a way for Russell to make a living using the name "Jack Russell's Great White" with his own band; while the other original members along with new lead singer Terry Ilous , will continue to use the official name "Great White"
