  • Ja Rule has evaded being charged in a lawsuit related to the failed Fyre Fest. According to Page Six, a federal judge in Manhattan ruled this week that the rapper can be dismissed from a civil suit filed by cheated ticket holders who paid between $400 and $1,000 to attend. Specifically, Judge P. Kevin Castel found that the aggrieved attendees did not meet the legal standard to bring fraud claims against the rapper and Grant Margolin, the festival’s chief marketing officer. While Castel dismissed all claims in the suit, he gave the plaintiffs a three-week window to come forward with new evidence to re-file a fraud claim against the rapper. Ja Rule served as a promoter for the doomed event. He has also previously served time for tax evasion.
