Lil Wayne’s former lawyer is back in court demanding the $20 million lawsuit filed by the rapper be dismissed, saying he did nothing wrong.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wayne’s former lawyer, Ronald Sweeney, is attempting to shut down Wayne’s legal malpractice lawsuit.
Wayne is suing Sweeney accusing him of taking a higher than industry standard commission and screwing him over on deals.
In newly filed docs, Sweeney says Wayne has recently tried to argue because Sweeney’s law license was suspended for a brief period of time (which the lawyer says was due to “technical reasons”), that he committed fraud.
Sweeney says even if his license was suspended in one state for a time, he argues it caused no harm to Wayne. He says “Rather, Sweeney successfully represented Carter for more than 13 years.”
He is demanding the judge dismiss the entire $20 million case immediately.
