A judge has granted Roc-A-Fella a temporary restraining order banning Dame Dash from selling JAY-Z's classic album Reasonable Doubt as an NFT.
The verdict was clinched when Dame didn't show up to court today.
OK - Now Roc-a-Fella vs Damon Dash (except he has not shown up), hearing on Friday's request for an injunction against selling Jay-Z's "Reasonable Doubt" including via NFT.

#Breaking: Damon Dash has just been hit with a Temporary Restraining Order by @SDNYLIVE Judge Cronan prohibiting him from auctioning a NFT of Jay-Z's "Reasonable Doubt." Case brought by Roc-A-Fella Records. Inner City Press live tweeted it: https://t.co/FzxYkdBYeA— Inner City Press (@innercitypress) June 22, 2021
Judge Cronan: With respect to unjust enrichment, Dash would be unreasonably enriched. He is only a partial owner of Roc-A-Fella Records. He cannot sell "Reasonable Doubt." There would be irreparable injury if a TRO does not issue. It's a unique asset.— Inner City Press (@innercitypress) June 22, 2021
Dame has claimed his issues with Roc and Hov have nothing to do with the NFT. He says he's been trying to sell his 1/3 stake in Roc and JAY gave him a lowball offer, so he sought an outside party.
Dame believes that's why Roc came after him about the NFT, which he now can't sell.
