Kanye West’s ex-law firm must try harder to find him, judge says

(Reuters) – Attorneys at law firm Greenberg Traurig who represented rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West in a copyright case must work harder to notify him that they are cutting ties and abandoning his defense, a Manhattan federal judge said Tuesday.

The judge rejected the lawyers’ arguments that they had done their best to serve West and should be allowed to try alternative avenues like newspaper ads to reach him. But she gave them more time to reach him by traditional means like mail.

Representatives for Greenberg Traurig and for West, now legally known as Ye, did not immediately respond to requests for comment
