Drake Wins a Battle That Has Nothing to Do with Meek Mill
Back to back…
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Barbara Scheper ruled in favor of Drizzy Drake on Tuesday in regards to a libel lawsuit.
Film distribution company SpectiCast sued the “6 God” earlier this year over their documentary Drake’s Homecoming: The Lost Footage that chronicled his sold-out 2009 concert in Toronto, Canada. Drake warned fans on social media prior to the film’s release that he had no association with the film, which SpectiCast claims hindered the success of its theatrical release.
In addition to 100 theaters cancelled Drake’s Homecoming screenings, the company claims that the artist broke an alleged endorsement deal that he had agreed upon with SpectiCast.
Drake cited his constitutional right to free speech in his initial hearing on Sept.15, arguing that there was not a standing release agreement. Judge Scheper ruled in his favor on Sept. 29, asserting that it was “strange” that SpectiCast did not communicate with Drake leading up to the documentary’s post-production and distribution.
