Yo Gotti requests the judge to vacate $6.6 million judgment against him.
The sentence, ordered last month comes from a lawsuit against Yo Gotti for not following through on his half of a music deal. A North Carolina music professional paid Yo Gotti $20,000 for a feature verse on his artist’s song. Instead of delivering the verse as promised, Yo Gotti attempted to sign the artist himself and eventually, released the verse on a similar song.
Legal name Mario Mims, Judge Todd Burke ruled Yo Gotti upheld unfair and deceptive practices. Judge Burke multiplied the original judgment of $2.2 million into the amount Yo Gotti hopes to vacate.
The initial report indicated Yo Gotti and team never showed for the trial however the Memphis rapper claims there’s a valid reason. Winston Salem Journal reports, Yo Gotti’s attorneys claim he was never officially served with the lawsuit. Clarke Dummit, attorney of Michael Terry the plaintiff in the lawsuit maintains his attempts to reach Yo Gotti lasted months.
