RadarOnline.com told you first that Dash was hit with the verdict from a New York judge for not fulfilling a $823k judgment to movie producer Josh Weber.

Despite pushback from Jay Z who objected to the auction along with Roc-A-Fella Records co-owner Kareem "Biggs" Burke, the judge determined that Dash's one-third ownership of the famed record label is personal property that can be seized.

In a statement shared with RadarOnline.com, Webber's powerhouse attorney Chris Brown clarified there "will be three judgments totaling approximately $1,000,000 including interest that may be satisfied with the sale of Damon Dash's one-third interest in Roc-a-Fella Records, Inc."

The legal drama first kicked off between 2016 and 2018 when Webber and his Muddy Waters Pictures axed Dash as the film's director because he was allegedly unfit for the role.

Dash allegedly claimed it was his feature film that Weber hijacked and began shopping the crime thriller to outlets like BET under a new title: The List. Weber fired back by successfully suing Dash in federal court but was unable to collect on the 2022 judgment.

Attorney Brown tells us that Dash "no control over the auction process" and those reaching out to [Dash] personally with the hopes of purchasing the shares "need to know they are barking up the wrong tree" as Dash did not create the auction and is "simply a judgment debtor along for the ride."
