Damon Dash beat his nemesis lawyer in court, but the victory may not last long if they attorney taking on the mogul has his way!

Damon Dash has had his hands full with legal issues this week, thanks to court battles with his nemesis lawyer, Christopher Brown. 

Earlier this week, it was revealed Damon would have to sell his share in Roc-A-Fella to satisfy a judgment Christopher Brown won against him over the movie “Dear Frank” unless Jay-Z can successfully block the ruling.

In another battle, Christopher Brown, representing photographer Monique Bunn, has sought a new trial against Damon Dash, his wife, Raquel Horn, and their associated companies. 

This lawsuit originated from an incident in April 2019 when Monique Bunn stayed at Damon Dash’s mansion in Los Angeles for a photo shoot for his Poppington brand. 

Bunn sued Dash for $51 million, claiming he had inappropriately touched her and unlawfully withheld a hard drive containing over 100,000 photographs of famous rappers, celebrities, and influencers.

Dash was cleared of sexual assault charges in a federal court but was found liable for libel violations, resulting in a $30,000 award to Bunn for defamation. 

However, Dash and his girlfriend, Raquel Horn, were found responsible for damaging Bunn’s property, but Bunn won no money regarding damages over the hard drive.

Christopher Brown is asking a judge for a new trial over the jury’s decision to award Bunn zero damages despite Bunn’s clear ownership of the property and the substantial evidence presented regarding the value of the stolen property. 

Brown believes the jury was possibly confused about the concept of harm, which led to the unfavorable verdict for Bunn.
