Lil' Kim Got a Lil' Problem with the Law
Highest Court New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division
Year Ended 2007
Plaintiffs Individual(s)
Defendants Individual(s)
Lil' Kim
Other No Other parties on file
Short Description Kimberly Jones, a.k.a. Lil Kim, was found to have defaulted in a lawsuit. She could not provide an excuse for failing to challenge the plaintiff's suit, and her lawyer's neglect was imputed to her. It is likely that this is a civil suit related to an incident in 1993 when Lil Kim's former band mate, Lil' Cease, and other members of the group Junior M.A.F.I.A. shot Michael Goody, the plaintiff in this suit. Apparently, Goody was talking too loudly on a cellphone for their tastes, and when he dialed another number, the men shot Goody, fearing he was calling for backup. - JMC
