However, Ellis remained silent. Conversely, Walker faulted the authority in place of dispensing inconsistent decrees which preferred Jay Z, and other culprits as well as Roc-A-Fella Records and its parental Universal Music Group Inc. He was also alleged of founding one ruling through a private call from a lawyer of communal offenders which devoid of Walker’s standpoint.
