From Rolling Stone:
Contrary to media reports, Lil Wayne has not dropped his $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money Records. Lil Wayne’s lawyer, Ron Sweeney, tells Rolling Stone that while the original suit was filed in New York, where both Cash Money and Universal Music Group have offices, the two sides have worked out a deal to re-file the suit in New Orleans, Louisiana, where Wayne originally signed his Cash Money contract in 1998.
“We gave them until [Monday], April 6th to file an answer,” Sweeney says. “[Cash Money] said they were going to challenge the venue, so at that point, it was a waste of time and money, so we all agreed that we would dismiss the action [in New York] and Wayne and [his record label] Young Money would re-file in New Orleans.”
