R-U-L-E has a reason to smile!

A federal court on Wednesday dismissed a class-action lawsuit against rapper Ja Rule that alleged he falsely promoted the doomed Fyre Festival. The rapper was a founder of the 2017 event, which promised a luxury experience but turned out to be a disaster

According to reports, The decision by Judge Kevin Castel came in a case filed by festival-goers against Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, and Fyre Fest chief marketing officer Grant Margolin. They were accused of organizing and promoting the event while knowing it was a scam.

But Castel wrote in a 32-page decision in Manhattan Federal Court that their boasts in the months prior to the concert did not mean that they knew it would devolve into a crisis.

“(Ja Rule) and Margolin were participants in organizing or promoting a large-scale event. There is no assertion that the Festival when first conceived or introduced to the public was intended not to go forward or that defendants intended not to perform by organizing the advertised amenities and accommodation,” Castel wrote.

“Mr. Atkins is thankful for today’s ruling and for the Court’s time and attention. Justice was done today,” his attorney Ryan Smith said.

According to the suit, the DJ states that she was informed that her group mates made more that $600,000 in royalties in the last 10 years, and that she hasn’t seen an ounce of the same pay.

Drivers stop on Atlanta interstate to grab $175,000 that fell from armored truck

An armored truck’s door sprang open on Interstate 285 on the north side of Atlanta on Tuesday night, spilling cash across the highway.

According to reports, While the truck was making it rain, drivers pulled over to join in a literal cash grab.

The armored truck company estimated the unintended gift at $175,000, according to the Dunwoody Police Department.

Those driving past got out their phones and shot video of cars and trucks pulling over, with people jumping out to try to scoop up bills blowing in the wind.

About 8 p.m., police responded to 911 calls that more than 15 vehicles had stopped on the busy interstate to pick up money that had fallen off an armored vehicle.

“The armored car crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285,” Dunwoody Police said in a statement. “Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that was still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken.”

It’s a crime to hold on to cash from the truck

The exuberant videos that people posted as the cash danced in the air are now doubling as evidence. Police are checking social media video to find the drivers with sticky fingers.

“We have plenty of social media video, some of which seems to have tag numbers, to follow up on, but we really want people to come in, turn in the money and go on about their life without worrying about when the police are coming to find them,” said Sgt. Robert Parsons, a spokesman for the Dunwoody Police Department.

He noted that one man turned in $2,100, and another handed over $500 that he picked up on the highway.

“If the money is turned in, we will not criminally charge those who do the right thing,” Parsons said.

For those who picked up cash and kept it for themselves, charges could include theft of lost or mislaid property and could be a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the amount.
