The lawsuit brought against the late Juice Wrld by pop-punk band Yellowcard has reportedly been put on hold—but not by a decision from the band.
On Wednesday (Feb. 12), XXL obtained court documents showing a Los Angeles judge has paused the proceedings because no one has been appointed as the executor of Juice’s estate. In the docs, the matter is reportedly given a two-month deadline to be sorted out.
“The action is stayed pending the appointment of a representative for the estate of Defendant [Jarad A.] Higgins by the probate court,” the documents reportedly state. “The parties shall file a status report re: the probate proceedings no later than April 13, 2020.”
The suit was first filed back in October of 2019, prior to the rapper’s untimely passing in December. The group accused Juice Wrld of illegally sampling elements of their 2006 song “Holly Wood Died” for his 2017 breakout hit, “Lucid Dreams.”
