Great news for rapper Ja Rule, who has been dropped from a $100 million lawsuit stemming from the disastrous Fyre Festival.
Billboard reports that both Ja Rule and Fyre Fest's chief marketing officer Grant Margolin have been dropped from the ongoing case in an order filed on November 7.
U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel ruled that the attendees of the festival who filed the claims against the two should be dismissed because they had not sufficiently proven that either Ja Rule or Margolin had committed fraud by their actions.
"This Court rejected plaintiffs' conclusory assertions that they relied on defendants' representations about the Festival as insufficient to state a claim for fraud," Judge P. Kevin Castel ruled. "In the case of Atkins, plaintiffs alleged an actionable false statement, but failed to allege that they acted in reliance thereon."
Ja Rule has always maintained that he had no knowledge of co-founder, Billy McFarland's dodgy dealings, which separated investors and attendees from millions of dollars in total.
