L.A. judge denies rapper’s default judgement against The Game in ongoing rapper feud

Saying she doubted the law supported granting such an order, a judge today denied a motion brought on behalf of 40 Glocc that could have led to a default judgment against The Game for allegedly pointing a gun at his rival and watching while his entourage beat the plaintiff.

“I don’t want to make a legal error, I want to follow the law,” Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Brugera said.

Aaron Weissman, an attorney for 40 Glocc, said he will immediately petition the 2nd District Court of Appeal for an order directing Brugera to grant the motion.

He maintains that Judge Amy Hogue ordered The Game to pay about $20,000 in attorneys’ fees in September 2013 to compensate Weissman’s client for legal work on a motion decided earlier in the case.  The Game’s failure to turn over the money means the rapper’s answer to the complaint should be stricken and the default process begun, according to 40 Glocc’s attorneys.

The Game’s lawyer, Lonnie Brandon, has said his client may be able to pay the fees in two months.

“I was hoping it would have been paid by today,” the judge said.

The 40-year-old plaintiff 40 Glocc, whose real name is Lawrence White, alleges that he was leaving a party in Hollywood on July 7, 2012, when he heard someone say, “Turn up, ‘N word.”‘

The suit filed in October 2012 alleges that The Game — whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor — aimed a gun at 40 Glocc’s head and cocked it as he tried to run away, but tripped. He claims he pleaded with The Game not to shoot him, and the defendant, now 35, tried to hit him with the butt of the gun but missed.

About 10 men with The Game, some pointing guns, began beating 40 Glocc and told him that if he fought back they would “end it right now,” the suit alleges.

The plaintiff did not resist for fear of his life, and eventually his assailants stopped their attack, according to his court papers, which state that The Game later posted two online videos of the beating that he and some of the men with him recorded.

The Game claims his actions were in self-defense and that 40 Glocc has been threatening and harassing him for years.

Brugera ordered the lawyers to return to court May 19 for the setting of a trial date for 40 Glocc’s lawsuit, but whether a trial takes place depends on the actions of the appellate court concerning his pending petition.
