“Freeway” Ricky Ross suffered yet another legal setback in his ongoing battle with hip hop superstar Rick Ross. A judge rejected the former drug kingpin’s claims against Warner Bros. Records over the rapper’s use of his name and likeness.
Despite the news, Freeway Ricky is planning to head to appeals court.
“California Appeals Court briefs are due in a few weeks,” Ross told The Hollywood Report. “Judge believes that even a new contract still falls under Single publication, our position is that it is republication as in Nestle v. Chistophe. We feel good about our case. This is classic republication as to all defendants there was consistently new music, management decisions and product made. The statute of limitations was never meant to be used to hide defendants actively infringing with new decisions and campaigns.”
