A slow day today, so I guess we will share some of the R Kelly stuff floating around.
Via New York Post:
A panel of judges has shot down hip-hop mogul Damon Dash’s bid to ship a sensational multimillion-dollar sex-assault case against him down to Brazil. “I’m sure he’d love to bury this case in some little outpost down there, but now he’ll have to deal with this in the New York courts,” said Raoul Felder, the lawyer for the plaintiff, Kristie Thompson. Dash’s lawyer, Robert Kalina, declined to comment. The $15 million lawsuit says the assault took place on Jan. 1, 2003, after Thompson had met Dash at a New Year’s Eve part on the island of Angra off the Brazilian coast. Dash, who has denied the allegations, was never charged criminally. Thompson filed suit against Dash, 35, in 2003. He sought to have the case moved to Brazil, arguing that it was the site of the alleged attack. The state Appellate Division court sided with Thompson, finding both she and Dash “live and work in New York,” as do many of the proposed witnesses.
Without Joe Camel money coming in anymore, $15 million would probably break Damon Dash’s bank. What is Damon Dash without Joe Camel and money? This question may pop up on a SNL skit…..Damon’s Kiddies, Damon’s Kiddies.
