Top-selling R&B quartet Boyz II Men, currently in a contract dispute with Motown Records, have formed a new label that will be distributed and funded by Sony. The group will continue to record exclusively for Motown but will oversee talent, production and marketing aspects at the new Philadelphia-based label, Stonecreek Recordings. . . . A Hollywood jury found record producer Jeffery Bowens, 43, guilty Tuesday on two counts of simple battery for a Christmas Eve fight that erupted between Bowens, his wife, Bonnie Pointer, and her sister June Pointer. Bowens was acquitted on a more serious charge of spousal abuse. Sentencing is set for Feb. 22; Bowens faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $2,000 fine for each battery charge. . . . ABC's award-winning drama "NYPD Blue" will soon be shown on CBS as well--in syndication that is. The series will begin airing on CBS Television Stations in weekend syndication in the fall of 1997. . . . The Henry Fonda Theatre's hit comedy "Party" will celebrate Valentine's Day with the real-life marriage of an unidentified gay Los Angeles couple onstage following tonight's performance. The event aims to raise awareness for the Freedom to Marry Coalition, which is lobbying against Assembly Bill 1982, which seeks to block recognition of same-sex marriages.

Pointer case--Jeffrey Bowens, the husband of former Pointer Sisters member Bonnie Pointer, was found guilty by a Hollywood jury Tuesday of one count of battery with serious injury against Pointer's sister June in conjunction with a Dec. 24 incident involving the three family members. On a second charge of spousal battery, the jury found that Bonnie Pointer suffered no injury, so instead found Bowens guilty of regular battery against his wife. Bowens faces a maximum of 18 months in jail and a $3,000 fine for both counts. Wednesday's Morning Report included incorrect information about the jury's findings.
