The sweet smell of victory and a great Christmas present. 40 Glocc has won with lawsuit against Game that award the rapper a $3,000 judgement for an altercation in 2012.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Susan Bruguera also found that Game committed battery against 40 Glocc and will begin proceedings for the second phase of the trial to determine any further payments for punitive damages.
Brugera said in her ruling that the amount of money 40 Glocc was awarded reflects his lack of candor during his testimony. “The court finds plaintiff’s total disregard for the truth while testifying results in his failure to carry his burden of proof on all causes of action except for the undisputed battery,” she wrote in a three-page ruling.
The lawsuit dates back to October 2012 when 40 Glocc testified that Game and his cohorts assaulted him at gun point point as he was leaving a Hollywood party. “I feared I was going to die,” he testified. “Everybody’s got guns on me. My best defense was to run and get away.”
40 Glocc claimed to have received medical treatment for injuries to his face, hands and legs; and maintained that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, a claim the judge rejected.
In her ruling, the judge noted that 40 Glocc is an admitted gang member with a violent past. “Plaintiff’s testimony of suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of defendant’s battery and not because of the prior violence in his life totally lacks credibility,” Brugera wrote.
