NY court axes suit vs. label over Remy Ma shooting

Local Court News Posted on

A New York appeals court has rebuffed an attempt to hold Remy Ma's former record label accountable for the rapper's shooting of an acquaintance in 2007.

Tuesday's ruling notes that a Universal Music Group Inc. affiliate ended its contract with Remy Ma nine months before she shot Makeda Barnes-Joseph outside a Manhattan nightclub.

The Grammy Award-nominated rapper was convicted of assault and other charges. She's serving an eight-year prison sentence.

Barnes-Joseph's lawyer says she's disappointed by the ruling. A lawyer for Remy Ma had no immediate comment. A lawyer for Universal didn't immediately return a call.

The appeals court upheld a lower court's decision to dismiss Barnes-Joseph's case against Universal and various affiliates. She also is suing the rapper and the club.
