In case the upcoming murder trial wasn't enough to occupy Phil Spector's legal docket...

A Los Angeles hotel has sued the infamous music producer, his wife, Rachelle, and his agent, Jennifer Lee Barringer, for supposedly failing to pay their bill after reserving a block of rooms for Spector's legal team and defense witnesses during his first trial last year in the killing of Lana Clarkson.

Per the complaint filed in L.A. Superior Court, Spector's camp racked up more than $104,000 in charges over seven months at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites and, when the hotel demanded that Spector pay up, the Wall of Sound creator said he would—provided he got a "drastic discount of the outstanding balance."

A rep for Spector hasn't yet responded to a request for comment. The Westin is alleging breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation and is looking to collect the entire bill, with interest.

Spector, whose first go-round ended in a mistrial, is scheduled to be tried again Sept. 29.
