According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the current pandemic has lead to court closures which have caused Juice WRLD’s mom to suffer setbacks in probate court. She has been unable to get a judge to sign off on her being the head of her late son’s estate. As a result, Yellowcard’s lawsuit has to be put on pause until the estate issues are figured out.
In the lawsuit, the members of Yellowcard Ryan Key, Peter Mosley, Longineu Parson, and Sean Wellman-Mackin sued Juice Wrld (real name: Jared Higgins), Taz Taylor and Interscope Records.
Yellowcard accuse Juice WRLD of using a sample of their 2006 track “Holly Wood Died” in his hit “Lucid Dreams”, without permission or paying them a dime. They are suing seeking $15 million in damages.
Following the rapper’s death in December, the court put the case on hold until someone was put in charge of Juice WRLD’s estate.
