Lil Wayne’s Brilliant Deposition Performance Was Not Enough To Win Him The Case

by (@zaragolden)

Looks like Lil Wayne‘s brilliant deposition performance was not enough to win Weezy the case. As you’ll remember, earlier this year, Lil Wayne took Quincy Jones’s son to court, alleging that his use of Lil Wayne’s music in the 2009 documentary The Carter was copyright infringement. Yesterday a Los Angeles jury dismissed that case. Turns out there was also a countersuit in the mix, this one raised by Jones and claiming that Lil Wayne “wrongfully limited the film’s profit potential;” Wayne lost that one, too. According to TMZ’s report, when Lil Wayne missed his day in court after suffering a mid-flight health scare, his lawyer was forced to the aforementioned deposition tapes for a less than amused judge and jury. Unfortunately for Wayne, they were were less than amused and have ordered him to cough up a hefty $2.2 million. Ouch!
