Jay Z has scored a legal victory in his $600 million trademark lawsuit this week. A judge ruled that the rapper is not responsible for ignoring legal papers served by Dr. Francois De Cassagnol who claims Jay and his business associates -NBA- stole the name "Brooklyn Nets," which he also claims to have trademarked.
Jay Z Wins $600 Million Trademark Lawsuit!
Last we checked; No one messes with Jay Z, Not even the Courts!
Well, the hip hop giant may have got 99 problems, but being in default with the courts isn't one of them!
As we earlier reported, business mogul, De Cassagnol asked the court to find Jay Z in default last month after he served the hip hop impresario with legal papers at his 40/40 Club in New York City and received no response.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline today, a judge ruled that:
"the Clerk of Court shall not note [Jay Z's default]" because De Cassagnol "provides no support for his claim that [the employee] is authorized to accept service on [Jay Z's] behalf" and the defendants "maintain that Sean Carter was improperly served."
Furthermore, the documents state, Jay Z's co-defendants — including businessman Bruce Ratner and the NBA — have requested a pre-trial conference moving to dismiss De Cassagnol's complaint.
