Megan Thee Stallion trots to yet another victory in the ongoing, highly publicized legal battle with her record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment.
Over a month after the imprint attempted to use the courts to help them block the release of her latest top 10 EP, ‘Suga’ (as we reported here), now they’ve suffered another loss at the hands of the justice system.
As we reported here, 1501 – headed by Carl Crawford (pictured above) – argued the ‘Savage’ hitmaker had no right to sue them as her contract expressly states any legal disputes between them must be settled through arbitration.
However, a Texas judge recently denied Crawford’s motion to handle their differences with an arbitrator and instead decreed they must enter a courtroom to hash the matter out.
“Crawford filed paperwork on March 11 asking the court to compel the artist — real name Megan Pete — to have her case decided by a single arbitrator. Crawford’s motion said that Pete’s contract with him specified that any disputes were to be handled in arbitration.
Yet, presiding Texas Harris County Judge Robert Schaeffer sided with Pete and Crawford’s denied motion to compel arbitration. In addition, Schaeffer also denied Crawford’s request to stay that case.”
