Ja Rule has been cleared in the $100 million brought by Fyre Festival attendees. According to an order filed Nov. 7, Ja and Fyre Fest’s chief marketing officer Grant Margolin have been dropped from the case that is still ongoing.
Ja Rule’s attorney, Ryan Hayden Smith, said in a statement: “In July, the Court dismissed all Fyre Festival claims against Mr. Atkins. After this loss, plaintiffs’ law firm Geragos & Geragos appealed that decision, and the Court denied their appeal. This ruling is nothing short of a total vindication of Mr. Atkins.”
The lawsuit is still ongoing. Festival co-founder Billy McFarland is currently serving a six-year prison sentence for his role in the disaster that also got turned into two documentaries.
