A federal judge has tossed out a lawsuit by former Farmington resident and renowned rapper 50 Cent who had sued rival rapper Rick Ross over the remixing of the hit “In Da Club.”

U.S. District Judge Warren Eginton of the District of Connecticut announced Monday, in a sealed document, that he was dismissing the three-year-old lawsuit in which 50 Cent had accused Rick Ross for using the 2003 Billboard-topping song on his “Renzel Remixes” mixtape. The sealed document was not made available, but attorneys for both rappers said the lawsuit had been dismissed.
