Assault Case Between Rick Ross And DJ Vlad Settled For $300,000

After originally seeking $4 million, Vlad will pocket $300,000 for the 2008 assault charge he originally filed against Rick Ross.

Rick Ross and DJ Vlad have settled the 2008 lawsuit filed against Ross for what Vlad called a "brutal attack" at the 2008 Ozone Awards. DJ Vlad originally filed a $4 million suit against Ross after suffering facial fractures, a corneal abrasion and several stitches after he and Ross had a meeting in Houston. The week prior to the meeting, DJ Vlad posted several interviews questioning Ross' background as a corrections officer. After originally seeking $2 million in compensatory damages and another $2 million in punitive damages, DJ Vlad was awarded $300,000.

Rick Ross gave the following statement to MTV News after the verdict was announced.

"I've been fighting a 4 million lawsuit for the last two years, and my defense was a success. I gotta shout out Xavier Donaldson, my attorney. Whenever an artist or anybody is put in a position such as a lawsuit of this much evidence, tapes et cetera, et cetera. And the media can walk out of the courtroom giving the plaintiff less than 10 percent of what they requested, I consider my defense a success. God bless America."
