Dame Dash has taken another "L" in court after losing a copyright infringement case.

According to documents obtained by Page Six, Dame must pay a writer $300,000 for copyright infringement.

E.W. Brooks sued Dash when their plans to turn her four-part "Mafietta" book series hit a bump in the road. She says he marketed and sold the film about her female crime boss character without her consent.

"Damon Dash can no longer run from his scandalous and malicious treatment of E.W. Brooks," Brooks' attorney, Chris Brown, said in a statement. "At this point, four federal judges have told Mr. Dash he is dead wrong. It's time Mr. Dash pays Ms. Brooks the $300,000 he owes her and close the chapter."

Dame's team may appeal the decision.

"We respectfully disagree with the Second Circuit's summary order. In particular, we think that this court should not have affirmed the speculative damages awarded to Ms. Brooks and, for that reason, we are evaluating other appellate remedies at this time," Dash's attorney, Natraj Bhushan, told the outlet.
