Jay Z says the lawsuit deposition must be delayed as he prepares for his "On The Run Tour" with Beyonce.
Jay Z's lawyers say the rapper won't be ready to dispute a lawsuit over the Roc-A-Fella logo until he's finished with his On The Run Tour.
According to legal documents, Jay Z's lawyers say that the suit is trivial, according to TMZ. The lawyers say Jay is "one of the most prolific and hardest-working businessmen and recording artists in the world" and that the rapper's tour, which is set to also feature his wife Beyonce as a co-headliner, is "a non-stop effort."
As reported in March 2014, Dwayne Walker, fashion designer and creator of the Roc-A-Fella logo, says he wants $7 million for the creation of the logo.
In March 2014, Gregory Berry, Walker’s attorney, spoke about delays with regards to this lawsuit.
“For over 18 months Jay Z and the other defendants have done everything they can to avoid swearing under oath to the events that led to the creation of the logo," Berry said at the time.
