Future Scores Big Win In Legal Fight Against Ciara

By HHL Editors

Ciara's $15 million defamation  lawsuit against Future continues this week.

She says she's owed the cash for slander (spoken) and libel (written) because her ex unfairly maligned her during a radio interview and on social media.

In a ruling that should bring cheer to all rappers who beef on the internet, the judge has ordered that Tweets alone aren't enough to prove libel, and that she has to back it up with a specific explanation of how Future's 140 character or less messages damaged her career.

Here are some examples of the (now deleted) Tweets which Ciara say defamed her.

Future had initially counter-sued Ciara, but ended up dropping his case.
