Sedona Records has filed suit against Bertelsmann Music Group, its Zoo Entertainment label and label prexy Lou Maglia, alleging breach of contract in their joint-venture agreement.

The suit, filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges the joint venture was hampered by problems at Zoo Entertainment, which the suit claims lost $ 40 million to $ 45 million in its 2 1/2-year existence, including $ 14 million in the fiscal year beginning July 1992.
