Occasionally one sees testimony from the Beatles trial initiated by Paul in December 1970, which makes me think that aspects of it have been made public. (For instance: Ringo on when he went to Paul's house to tell him he had to put off the release of his solo record: "He went completely out of control, 'Shouting at me, prodding his fingers toward my face, saying, ‘I’ll finish you all now!’ and ‘You’ll pay!’”)

But has anyone dug up the whole trial and put it on the public record in a book. Or is it  sealed, and it's just that bits have leaked?

The trail is heavily documented in a number of books: Keith Badman's 'The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001' (entries from Tuesday 19th January 1971, Day One itself begins in on the 19th February 1971); and 'You Never Give Me Your Money' by Peter Doggett are both worthy of note. 'Man on the Run: Paul McCartney in the 1970s' by Tom Doyle also covers it well with some information i hadn't seen before. 

Ron Nasty posted Allen Klein's affidativ a few weeks back here.

 

There will be more sources and i'm sure folks here can help you out. You can also find John, George and Ringo's as well.

In addition to the books mentioned above there is one called 'Pop Goes To Court: Rock 'n' Pop's Greatest Court Battles' by Brian Southall that has a chapter (20 pages) on the Paul v John, George, Ringo & Apple trial - and whilst i haven't finished it, it does have additional information which i don't remember being in the others. 

Other Beatles related trials covered in the book are the My Sweet Lord court case and Apple v Apple.

In total 24 court room battles are examines (Elvis, U2, Procol Harum, Elton John being four) .

Well worth reading even if only the ones that interest you.
