Sep 5, 2022

NBA superstar LeBron James, rappers Drake and Future, and James' business partner Maverick Carter are reportedly being sued for $10 million after allegedly stealing "intellectual property rights" to a film about the segregated hockey league for Black players in Canada entitled "Black Ice."

The lawsuit has been served by Billy Hunter, who used to lead the NBA Players Association, the New York Post reports. He's seeking shared profits from the film as well as the $10 million in damages.

The lawsuit, filed to Manhattan state Supreme Court, says Hunter holds "the exclusive legal rights to produce any film about the Colored Hockey League that existed from 1895 to the 1930s."
