Tickets of America was given a deadline to serve the label and Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, with legal papers for unpaid tickets used by the New Orleans rapper. On January 27, the judge declared that the company did not meet the deadline and so he dismissed the case and said Lil Wayne‘s team does not owe any money.
Lil Wayne used the ticket broker to secure $119,400 worth of tickets for various events from February 2013 to June 2015. Among the events were the 2013 Super Bowl and the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao boxing match.
Tickets of America filed its lawsuit last year.
