Migos Drop Malpractice Lawsuit Against Attorney
Rap trio Migos is no longer entangled in a legal battle with its former attorney, Damien Granderson.
As previously reported, Quavo (Quavious Keyate Marshall), Offset (Kiari Cephus), and Takeoff (Kirshnik Khari Ball) filed a malpractice lawsuit against Granderson last summer, claiming that he charged them “excessive fees” without an actual contract. They also alleged that he didn’t tell them the nature of his relationship with their label, Quality Control Music.
The lawsuit claims that he
“abused his position of trust as Migos’ fiduciary from the moment he was retained as Migos’ lawyer.”
It also alleges he
“cheated [the group] out of millions of dollars.”
Migos also sued Granderson’s law firm, Granderson Des Rochers, and his previous firm, Davis Shapiro.
But they’ve since had a change of heart as they filed a second request to dismiss the lawsuit. While the first request for dismissal was filed without prejudice in November, which would allow them to sue again, the second one they filed Wednesday, Feb. 3rd, was with prejudice.
The agreement they came to hasn’t been reported.
Migos and Granderson entered the deal in question in the earlier days of their career, in 2014.
Quality Control’s CEO Pierre Thomas publicly took issue with the lawsuit in July 2020. He wrote in part:
“It is unfortunate that the same people that we have worked hard for, provided opportunities for, and championed for are now alleging that we have participated in any kind of immoral or unfair business practices or took advantage of them and their careers, especially while we are dealing with the death of an artist on our label that was dear to us.”
