NRA’s Legal Team

One of us accidentally found this, the case of rapper 50 Cent, sued for invasion of privacy., and represented by the Brewer law firm. “A jury ordered the rapper-actor Friday, July 10, to pay $5 million. . . . And the Manhattan jurors are set to continue deliberating next week on possible further, punitive damages in Lastonia Leviston’s invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against the multiplatinum-selling Get Rich or Die Tryin’artist.”

“Attorney William A. Brewer III says 50 Cent and his legal team are “disappointed in the verdict but very appreciative of the service of the jury and the court.””

The jury added on $2 million as punitive damages.

The rapper went bankrupt, the Brewer firm filed as a creditor, and its fees were challenged.

“A recent bankruptcy court filing by Leviston questions $57,241.76 spent by Brewer on hotel rooms, at up to $1,000 per night, over a period of months prior to the July verdict in the Manhattan trial. It also questions $14,800.66 for legal research, $26,890.90 for court reporters and $4,186.94 on travel expenses.

“The filing calls the Brewer firm’s expenses to defend the privacy case “extravagant, excessive and unreasonable” and contends Leviston’s own lawyers had less than $3,000 in expenses in the same Manhattan trial, the Daily News reports.”

Then there’s this:

“William A. Brewer III, one of 50 Cent’s attorneys, suggested Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection would simply let 50 Cent carry on with his business ventures “while he pursues an orderly reorganization of his financial affairs.” The reorganization ended with 50 Cent paying $22 million to creditors, including $6 million to the lady who sued him.
