Lil Wayne Planning Appeal in Lawsuit Against Quincy Jones III

January 4, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Lil Wayne is set to appeal his loss in a lawsuit against Quincy Jones III. TMZ reports that the rapper, who was ordered to pay $2,195,000 to Jones in a lawsuit filed against him over Jones’ documentary on Wayne, has filed documents declaring his intent to appeal the jury decision.

Wayne had initially filed suit against Jones, claiming that it was defamatory and used his music without permission. Jones counter-sued with claims that Wayne’s lawsuit had ruined the film’s profit potential. The jury sided with Jones.

Wayne has a month from now to file the actual appeal.
