Def Jam CEO Lyor Cohen has been smacked with
a lawsuit from former in-house lawyer Jonathan Lieberman, who also testified
in the TVT case for Def Jam.
According to a report by Roger Friedman of Fox
News, Lieberman, whose title was Vice President of business and legal affairs
for Def Jam, is seeking $6 million in damages claiming torturous interference.
Lieberman alleges that Cohen made it hard for
him to find work following his departure from Def Jam.
Def Jam was ordered to pay $132 million after
a jury ruled that Def Jam and Cohen interfered with the release of TVT’s Cash
Murder Clik, which featured Ja Rule.
