Kobe Bryant’s Legal Team Threatens To Channel Lil Wayne’s Infamous Deposition

Kobe Bryant is ready to recreate Lil Wayne’s Carter documentary deposition if vital. According to paperwork obtained by The Blast, the previous NBA star goes to be uncooperative if he needs to be deposed in an ongoing authorized case over his “Black Mamba” nickname.

Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is at the moment engaged in a trademark battle with Bryant over the title. The pharmaceutical firm filed for “Black Mamba HYPERRUSH” in 2015. A 12 months later, Bryant tried to trademark his nickname.

In the dispute, Hi-Tech instructed the 2008 NBA MVP’s attorneys about plans to depose him. The Los Angeles Lakers legend’s crew responded by fering to supply written solutions from Bryant, saying any video deposition would play out similar to Lil Wayne’s now notorious testimony.

“Deposing Kobe Bryant could be like Lil Wayne’s deposition … it might be similar to that – he’d simply be saying ‘I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know,’” Bryant’s lawyer instructed Hi-Tech, based on The Blast.

For these unfamiliar, the Weezy reference refers to a video from his lawsuit in opposition to Quincy Jones III over the 2009 documentary Tha Carter.

In 2012, Jones’ lawyer questioned the Young Money boss as half a deposition within the case and acquired stonewalled when Lil Wayne repeatedly answered with “I don’t recall.” Footage Weezy’s testimony leaked courtesy TMZ.
