The rapper, who was represented by Sebastian Shepherd, partner in the law firm of Terrier, Terrier, Wolfhound and Shepherd, pleaded not guilty to one charge of mischief and two charges of assault on a living being.
In rendering his decision, Mr. Justice Augustus Dindon of The Park’s Superior Court chastised the prosecution, accusing the plaintiff’s representatives of lacking substantial evidence and bringing forth a suit that was “all but frivolous.”
The Justice also had a warning for the popular Park rapper.
“Be forewarned,” he said. “Everything you do from now on will be scrutinized. There will always be those who believe it was you who assaulted the Tree and that you escaped punishment because of your fame. Although that was not the case this time and never will be in my court, I encourage you to behave in a way that reinforces your innocence, rather than the opposite.”
Neither the defendant nor the plaintiff spoke to media after leaving the courthouse.
