Marin Independent Journal reports that Lars Ulrich of Metallica fame is being sued by his former assistant, Steven Wiig.

A Sausalito man who worked as a personal assistant to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has filed a lawsuit claiming years of unpaid overtime.

Steven Wiig, 38, is seeking unspecified damages for alleged state and federal labor violations, breach of oral contract and continuing wages, according to the suit in Marin Superior Court. The lawsuit names Ulrich and Team Tours, a Burbank company that issued Wiig’s paychecks, as defendants.

A case management conference is set for June 24 before Judge Lynn Duryee.

Steven Wiig appeared at 1996’s Metallica Club Fan Can #1. Wiig can also be seen in 2004’s Metallica documentary Some Kind Of Monster.

Metallica is scheduled to play The Big 4 show in Indio, CA at the Empire Polo Club on April 23rd, 2011.
