Yellowcard is resuming their $15 million USD lawsuit against Juice WRLD’s estate. The pop band filed their initial complaint in October, claiming that the late rapper and his producers copied the same melody for “Lucid Dreams” from the group’s 2006 song “Holly Wood Died” without consent. 

However, following Juice WRLD’s tragic death in December 2019, the proceedings were put on pause since there was no appointed executor of the rapper’s estate. The coronavirus outbreak also led to another temporary halt in the trial in April.

Now, the case will resume with Juice WRLD’s mother, Carmela Wallace, being named the head of the estate. The court documents were filed on July 2, according to XXL

“The court has reviewed parties’ joint status report re: probate proceedings which states that the probate court has appointed Carmela Wallace as personal representative for the Higgins’ Estate,” the court filing stated. “Consequently, the Estate now can participate in this case.” 

Along with the $15 million USD lawsuit, Yellowcard is also requesting past and future royalties as well as damages from Juice WRLD’s tours.
