Remy Ma Shooting Victim Loses Case Against Record Label

A New York appeals court threw out a lawsuit Tuesday (May 11) against rapper Remy Ma‘s record label, barring them any accountability in the shooting of her acquaintance. Makeda Barnes-Joseph filed a $10 million suit against Universal Music Group claiming the label supported Remy’s criminal act by keeping her under contract during the shooting investigation in 2007. However, the ruling noted that the label dissolved its contract with the Bronx rapper months prior to the shooting.

This latest ruling marks the second time that Barnes-Joseph’s suit against the label has been thrown out. Following its dismissal, the initial suit was granted an appeal on the grounds that the court “disregarded or misunderstood” Remy’s employment status.
The Grammy-nominated rapper was convicted of first-degree assault for shooting Barnes-Joseph in the abdomen for allegedly stealing $3,000 from her. Remy is currently serving an eight year sentence for the crime. She maintains that the shooting was an accident and is appealing her conviction. She is eligible for parole in 2013.
