According to reports, Ja Rule’s name has been cleared in the Fyre Festival lawsuit that was brought against Billy McFarland and others.
In the past week, a judge sided with Ja Rule in the $100 million civil lawsuit, saying, “This Court rejected plaintiffs’ conclusory assertions that they relied on defendants’ representations about the Festival as insufficient to state a claim for fraud. In the case of Atkins, plaintiffs alleged an actionable false statement, but failed to allege that they acted in reliance thereon."
The rapper’s attorney issued a statement, saying, “In July, the Court dismissed all Fyre Festival claims against Mr. Atkins. After this loss, plaintiffs’ law firm Geragos & Geragos appealed that decision. Today, the Court denied their appeal. This ruling is nothing short of a total vindication of Mr. Atkins. -Ryan Hayden Smith attorney for Jeffrey Atkins p/k/a Ja Rule."
