Freeway Forced to Pay for Rick Ross’ Defense

Former drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross has led a protracted battle against rap star Ricky Rozay, still commonly addressed as Rick Ross, over the misuse of his name for financial gain. Yesterday Freeway was finally hit with a resounding setback when Judge Rita Miller ruled that he would have to pay a portion of the rapper’s attorney fees.

Freeway’s counsel argued that each use of the Rick Ross name in trade publications and on air should count toward extending the statute of limitations, but Judge Miller ruled that it was “one continuous use” and, perhaps in an act of kindness, reduced the defense’s request that he pay $1.3 million to cover court costs down to $500k.

Despite what most people would take as a sure sign that this may be a losing war, Freeway insisted, “It aint over and it aint never gonna be over until things get straight.” Ricky Ross declined some of his loyal associates’ offers to “handle” the rapper’s trespasses, according to ForbezDVD, but he has already taken a lawsuit up to the honchos at Warner Brothers for continuing to inappropriately promote Rozay’s career.
