In relation to the murder of XXXtentacion, a Florida judge has ruled that Drake won’t have to sit for a deposition requested by defense lawyers.
According to TMZ, Drake’s motion to avoid the deposition was approved by Judge Michael A. Usan, nullifying the court’s earlier ruling for him to appear later this month and provide answers.
Dedrick Williams’ defense lawyer, Mauricio Padilla, had suggested Drake needed to be there for questioning because of a history of animosity between him and XXX.
The judge agreed with Drake’s lawyer Bradford Cohen that the rapper had no pertinent information to add to the case.
Even though the trial has already started, Padilla has to persuade the judge that there is another reason Drake should be called to testify.
