Lil Wayne hasn’t dropped his $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money Records, contrary to previous reports. The lawsuit was moved from New York to New Orleans, according to Rolling Stone.

Cash Money and Universal Music Group offices are in New York, but Wayne originally signed his record deal with the former in New Orleans in 1998. The lawsuit was re-filed there.

“We gave them until April 6th to file an answer,” said Ron Sweeney, Wayne’s lawyer. “[Cash Money] said they were going to challenge the venue, so at that point, it was a waste of time and money, so we all agreed that we would dismiss the action [in New York] and Wayne and [his record label] Young Money would re-file in New Orleans.”

“Lil Wayne and Young Money LLC have entered into a stipulation with Cash Money; the effect of which is to transfer the claims raised in the action, which had been commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, to the Federal and/or State Courts of Louisiana,” the rapper’s legal team added in a statement.

Wayne told Rolling Stone in February he’s no longer on speaking terms with Birdman. “I have no words,” he said. “I’m super-numb to it, to tell you the truth.”
