Lil Wayne hasn’t exactly let Cash Money loose from his $51 million lawsuit just yet.
Information has released by way of Wayne’s lawyer, Ron Sweeney, that Wayne temporarily dismissed the lawsuit but will move the breach of contract case against Birdman out of NYC and down south to New Orleans.
“We agreed to dismiss the lawsuit in New York,” Sweeney said, “based on the terms of the contract, the correct venue is arguably New Orleans. Instead of fighting, going back and forth.”
The lawsuit was originally filed in January with claims that Birdman broke his contract with Wayne by withholding funds that were supposed to go towards creating Wayne’s highliy-anticipated album “Tha Carter V.”
Wayne was also fighting for the rights to all Young Money recordings, and music artists, including Nicki Minaj and Drake.
Weezy’s lawyer, Michael Kramer, filed papers notifying the court that the case was “voluntarily dismissed, without prejudice,” according to the papers filed April 6 in Manhattan Federal Court.
When asked when the new lawsuit would be filed, Sweeney said, “I’m assuming it’s going to be post haste.”
