Lil Wayne Suffers Major Blow In $20M Lawsuit Against Ex-Manager

Most of the allegations in Lil Wayne's $20 million lawsuit against his former manager and lawyer, Ronald Sweeney, have been rejected by an appeals court. According to a report from Law.com, the Appellate Division looked at four claims from the lawsuit. These claims were for fraudulent inducement, legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, and unjust enrichment. In 2021, the Manhattan Supreme Court dismissed the four core claims, four other causes of action, and other portions of the claim. Lil Wayne's legal action was reduced after the appellate court upheld the earlier verdict. Sweeney, Lil Wayne's manager and lawyer since 2005, wants his share of Birdman and Cash Money Records' payout. ​​Lil Wayne skipped an August 2021 settlement deposition. Sweeney said the Louisiana native told his team not to reschedule the deposition. He stated Weezy was trying to procrastinate until a court dropped his $20 million bogus case.
