T.I. no longer has to worry about the lawsuit filed by his former restaurant employees who accused him of fraud because the suit has been dismissed
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the rapper and his former employees at the closed ATL restaurant, Scales 925, informed the court that the lawsuit against T.I. and his business partner is being dropped.
The case will officially be closed as a result and T.I. notes that the ex-employees were promised nothing as consideration for dropping the case.
Last year, several former employees of T.I.’s now-shuttered Georgia restaurant, Scales 925, hit T.I. with an amended federal lawsuit over unpaid wages and overtime. Scales 925 had opened in 2015 but closed the following year after several issues.
The amended complaint came months after the restaurant filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
The ex-employees claimed in their original lawsuit that T.I. and his partners used money from the restaurant for their own personal gain and paid themselves an unreasonably high salary while the business was losing money.
