Monday May 16, 2005, a Manhattan judge has come to a decisison, which was dismissed Jay-Z countersuit against R. Kelly stemming from November 2004 incident, in which the rapper was booted from their 40-city Best Of Both Worlds tour.

The suit against Kelly was, indeed, Jay-Z counterclaim in response to the R&B singer's $75 million U.S. lawsuit against him and his associates, claiming one of Jay's bodyguards discharged pepper spray into his face. As a result, Jay-Z then counter-suing Kelly with two claims, that Kelly cheated him by breaking a promise to put on a good show and that Kelly interfered with his contract with the tour promoter.

In fact, Kelly's lawyer Peter Parcher, said the decisison as "a terrific victory" for Kelly and "a huge setback" for Jay-Z. While Jonathan Davis, Jay's lawyer, believed his client still has a chance. The judge gave him permission to file new counterclaims, which Davis said he plans to do.
