Damon Dash Hit With Injunction Over Film, Ordered to Cease Promoting Project

Damon Dash was hit with a setback in a legal battle over a film he worked on, with a judge telling the music mogul to stop promoting the project or else.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a New York federal judge has ordered a temporary injunction against Damon Dash as part of the lawsuit filed by his former business partner.

The judge is prohibiting Dash from marketing, advertising or publicly promoting the film “Dear Frank” until the outcome of the lawsuit.

Earlier this year, director Josh Webber and Muddy Water Pictures, represented by powerhouse attorney Chris Brown, sued Damon Dash accusing him of publicly claiming he was a part of “Dear Frank,” despite the fact that he had already been dropped from the film.

Dash and Webber had been working on the project since 2016 and Dash was set to direct with Claudia Jordan starring. However, things quickly turned south and Webber accused Dash of being high on set and had to be dropped. They claim to have dropped Dash from the project in 2018 and finished it without him.

The director claimed Dash was sending out promo material for a film called “The List” (which was the original title) to BET and made it appear he was still working on it.

Webber sued for defamation and copyright infringement seeking unspecified damages plus an injunction against Dash continuing to claim he was apart of the movie.
