The answer is, who really knows except for the legal system, and even that's a stretch. I thought DeMartini and Blotzer controlled the trademark, but I guess they agreed to accept Pearcy back in as a partner when he rejoined. Then Croucier came back in the picture, and he was the key to pushing out Blotzer - it was argued that Croucier was still technically a partner, and the court agreed. Blotzer is still appealing the decision, but he was "fired" by the remaining partners (i.e. Pearcy, DeMartini, Croucier).
Who knows about DeMartini - it just feels like a big, hot, boring mess and the band feels done as a creative unit. It's all about "legacy" touring now.
