The court case which has pitched Jim 'Not That One' Diamond against Jack White has started to throw out little snapshots of life in modern Detroit, with allegations that Jack... well, still isn't over his Von Bondies problems:

White Stripes frontman Jack White has denied as "laughable" a claim from Von Bondies singer Jason Stollsteimer that he stuck an obscenity-filled warning note on his door with a knife.

The star, who in 2004 pleaded guilty to assaulting his old friend in a Detroit club the previous year, insists it was not him who put the note on Stollsteimer's door.

Diamond made the claim about the note, reports Associated Press. Stollsteimer added that he was sure the message was from White.

Stollsteimer told the US District Court jury: "I found a note stuck to my door with a knife in it. The knife held up a magazine interview story in which White apparently believed that Stollsteimer slighted him by minimizing his role in producing a Von Bondies album."

But there's no reason, of course, to assume that that was anything to with White. Why would it be?
