Dame Dash's Lawyer Wants To Quit For Lack Of Payments

(AllHipHop News) Music mogul Dame Dash is facing a couple of lawsuits at the moment, but it appears his lawyer no longer wants to represent him during his legal battles. Court documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, show attorney John Fazzio has asked a judge to allow him to break from Dash.

According to the docs filed on July 15, Fazzio claims he has not been properly compensated for his work on behalf of Dash, and he has repeatedly tried to contact his client without receiving any response.

The legal papers state:

I have consistently communicated with Defendant Dash, and his representatives, asking for them to assist with their defense and asking them to cure large outstanding balances owed to the Firm, and indicated repeatedly that the Firm would be making this motion to withdraw as counsel if the pattern of non-responsiveness and non-compliance with their payment obligations continued and if the outstanding bill for services rendered to date was not paid.

One of Dash’s ongoing lawsuits is a breach of contract and copyright infringement complaint. Dwayne Walker is suing Dash, Jay Z, and Universal Music Group. Walker claims he created the Roc-A-Fella logo and was never properly paid for his design.
