Soundgarden's remaining members Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, Ben Shepherd and band business manager Rit Venerus have filed a suit against Cornell in Washington state U.S. District Court asking for the passwords, or for Cornell to post "Soundgarden has temporarily suspended its official social media accounts due to pending litigation" on all channels.

In addition to this suit, the band and Cornell are wrapping up a suit regarding allegedly withheld royalties. U.S. District Judge Michelle Peterson recently ruled that Soundgarden is not withholding what Chris Cornell's widow Vicky Cornell said is “hundreds of thousands of dollars” in unpaid royalties, and that the band’s manager did not breach any perceived duties to look after Vicky's best interests.
