Dame Dash Sued Again By Photographer

Photographer Monique Bunn is suing Dame Dash again, claiming he cost her almost $400 million and saying that because the jury was misinformed about the actual scope of the damages, she contends that her previously heard case against the Roc-A-Fella CEO needs to be revived.

She claims in a recent filing that the trial established the $1,500 value of each of her images, and as a result, she is seeking payment. In 2019, Bunn had filed a prior lawsuit against Dash. She said at the time that he had inappropriately touched her when she was sleeping at his residence for a film production. Also, Dash was recently mandated to sell his remaining Roc-A-Fella shares in order to pay off obligations arising from a legal lawsuit that was filed in 2022. He is being sued for copyright infringement by a movie producer.

According to media outlet HipHopDX, Bunn penned in a memorandum of law,

“The evidence at trial – which was uncontroverted – established that each photo was worth $1,500, which should have resulted in a verdict for at least $384,750,000,”

“It is well known that professional photographers earn much of their income through licensing their portfolio of photographs, and Defendants’ actions destroyed Ms. Bunn’s economic prospects. The jury ignored the valuation evidence and awarded zero to Ms. Bunn.”

“It is impossible to conceive how a jury could conclude that a professional photographer’s portfolio of thousands of photos, as well as photography equipment, could be worth zero. Especially when the Plaintiff and the Defendants both testify that the damages are in the millions. A new trial is warranted under these circumstances.”
