50 Cent wants to grill a lawyer in connection with his $32 million-battle over Rick Ross’ baby mama.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, 50 is asking a judge to step in and allow him to take the deposition of an attorney to build his case.
50 Cent sued his former lawyers, Reed Smith LLP, accusing them of malpractice. He accused them of screwing up the lawsuit brought by Rick Ross’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston. He was hit with a $7 million judgment in the case. He then sued his lawyers demanding $32 million in damages. The firm denies all allegations.
In newly filed documents, 50 says he wants to depose the firm’s former Chief Legal Officer, Michael Scott.
The firm has been trying to object to Scott being deposed. They argue Scott, “never performed any work for Jackson in the Leviston Matter and has no personal knowledge about the facts of that case.”
Further, “Mr. Scott’s only connection to the Leviston Matter has been to serve as Reed Smith’s general counsel by giving Reed Smith and Peter Raymond legal advice and by representing them at a settlement meeting with counsel for Jackson prior to the filing of any malpractice claim.”
