Lil Wayne Moves His Cash Money Lawsuit To New Orleans
Lil Wayne has not dropped his lawsuit against Cash Money; rather, the case has moved from New York to New Orleans.
Earlier today, we posted that Lil Wayne had dropped his $51 million lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records. According to Wayne’s lawyer, Ron Sweeney, however, the lawsuit is still on. Wayne still plans to sue Cash Money for the same price of $51 million, though the case has been moved from New York to New Orleans.”We gave them until [Monday], April 6th to file an answer,” Sweeney toldRolling Stone. “[Cash Money] said they were going to challenge the venue, so at that point, it was a waste of time and money, so we all agreed that we would dismiss the action [in New York] and Wayne and [his record label]Young Money would re-file in New Orleans.”
It’s unclear how the location change will affect the timeframe of the legal proceedings, though Sweeney added that Cash Money “will be prosecuted in Louisiana as expeditiously as possible.” As of now, we know no agreement has been reached, and Wayne is still vehement about freeing himself from the Cash Money prison and taking what’s his: the Young Money brand (and a cool $51 million).
This is far from the last you’ll hear in the ongoing dispute, so be sure to check back with us as the legal battle now moves closer to home, in New Orleans.
