Kanye West's $500K Infringement Lawsuit Was Thrown Out For A Reason That May Have You Questioning Our Legal System, But Not The Powers Of Yeezus

kanye west successfully evades legal battle infringement case 500k dismissed

Kanye wins! Praise Yeezus, Kanye WINS!

If you're like us, you only want the best for Kanye West!

Whether the subject up for debate is home renovations or parenting with Ryan Seacrest, we always hope the 36-year-old rapper ends up in a good place!

So, imagine our smiley-faced surprised when we learned Robert Poindexter's $500K infringement case against him had been dismissed!

As it turns out, a judge threw out the lawsuit because the plaintiff never served Kanye the proper paper work! So the case was “dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute” earlier this month!

Wow! We don't know how Kanye evaded getting served for twenty months - the dude must be a ninja - but we congratulate the new father on his legal victory!

For what it's worth, the plaintiff alleged that Kanye ripped off the R&B singer's 1972 song Trying Girls Out in his song Girls Girls Girls!

Do U think he got off too easy?!

50 Cent isn't denying the fact that he sampled a song called Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out by The Persuaders, but he doesn't think that he can be sued for it either.

The rapper is asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit from a man named Robert Poindexter, who's accusing him of using the soul tune without permission to create Redrum, a track he handed out to fans for free online.

50 is denying any copyright infringement and doesn't even think Poindexter actually owns the rights to the song in the first place.
