*A copyright infringement lawsuit filed against 50 Cent has been tossed out by a judge.
Rapper Tyronne Simmons launched a legal battle against the rapper and music producer William C. Stanberry in 2010, claiming he owned the exclusive right to the instrumental featured in hit 2007 track “I Get Money (Straight to the Bank Pt. 2).”
However, on Friday (March 23), U.S. District Judge Dora Irizarry dismissed all counts against 50, real name Curtis Jackson, because the three-year statute of limitations for a copyright suit had expired.
The judge has not yet reached a decision on the claims against Stanberry.
