Jay Z’s Ex-Engineer Sues LAPD And NYPD For Seizure Of Recording Files
Back in 2014, we reported that Jay Z’s former engineer was suing him for partial owner of Roc-A-Fella Records because he was integral in the company’s rise my recording Jay Z’s biggest hits.
After losing that case, TMZ is now reporting that Chauncey Mahan is going after the police departments who seized the recordings in a sting operation. Mahan is also suing the owner of Baseline Studios, just for good measure…
Here’s the rest of the damages, in his eyes:
– LAPD $10 million
– NYPD $10 million
– Roc Nation lawyers $80 million
– Studio owner $20 million
In total, Mahan wants $220 million for his troubles. Hard to believe he’ll ever see dime.
