Judge Dismisses $20 Million Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne

Update 10/15/2021 11:06am:

Lil Wayne’s former attorney Ronald Sweeney became Lil Wayne’s manager following

the firing of Wayne’s former manager Cortez Bryant. Since then, Sweeney filed a claim

saying that Weezy denied him of commissions and also didn’t pay him for services he

gave while Wayne was dealing with legal issues involving Cash Money Records.

The suit filed by Sweeney said that Weezy refused to pay “his promised 10% of the

recovery from lawsuits, 10% of the sale of master recordings owned by Lil Wayne’s

record label and then 17% in general commissions that he owes to Plaintiffs in

connection with Plaintiff’s day to day management activities.” Wayne filed a

countersuit since then, alleging that Sweeney overcharged him for legal services. Now,

a judge has decided on the legal battle between both parties.

The suit was reportedly filed in California, but the judge in the case noted the suit

should have been filed in Florida, where Weezy lives. Because of that mistake, the

judge threw out the suit. As of now, Lil Wayne’s suit against Sweeney for overcharging

him is still pending.
