Lawsuits Dropped: Houston TV Station Fox 26 Gives Details on Trae Tha Truth vs. Radio One Lawsuits

From reporter Isiah Carey (HOUSTON) - The lawsuit that pitted Houston-based rapper Trae Tha Truth against Radio One, Inc. station 97.9 The Box has been dropped.

Trae Tha Truth filed his lawsuit in May that claimed the Radio One-owned company prevented him from making a living with an alleged ban on the rapper and his music.

The legal team for Radio One, Inc. filed a counter suit to even the legal battle. On July 22, however, both sides simply agreed to drop their lawsuits.

Warren Fitzgerald, attorney for Trae tha Truth, confirmed with FOX 26 News that both sides agreed to walk away from the legal battle, but there was no settlement of record.

Fitzgerald said there are a lot of positive things that Trae tha Truth can do and that he and the rapper will refocus their efforts. He did not say specifically why both sides decided to walk away from the fight.

FOX 26 has not been able to reach attorneys for Radio One, Inc.

Coincidentally, the lawsuits were dropped on [last] Thursday, which was Trae Day in the City of Houston.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
