remy ma Remy Ma Still Looking at Legal TroubleMakeda Barnes-Joseph, the shooting victim in that old Rema Ma case has
renewed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Ramy’s label Universal Music Group.

Barnes-Joseph was shot twice by Remy over a financial dispute back in 2007. Remy is currently serving an 8 year sentence in New York.

Barnes-Joseph filed her suit against Universal in 2008, claiming the company encouraged Remy’s criminal behavior by allowing violence in her music and retaining her as an “employee” during the criminal investigation.

The label countered with a motion summary judgment to have the complaint dismissed, which Judge Betty Owen granted last April.Barnes-Jospeh’s attorney, Lauren P. Raysor, filed an Appellate Brief on February 2 to appeal the decision, arguing her client’s case was not given due process as “the Court either disregarded or misunderstood the employment status of Remy Smith, aka “Remy Ma,” with Universal Music Group at the time of the shooting.”

Earlier this week, opening oral arguments began in New York State Supreme Court.
Remy Ma also has an ongoing appeal regarding her conviction. If it fails, she can be eligible for release in 2013.
