Kingston Jamaica - Supreme Court judge Kirk Anderson yesterday (Wed) turned down
Musician Wayne Lattibeaudiere more popularly known as Jah Wayne, had obtained the judgement against Tony Rebel.
Anderson held that a copy of the order was served on Tony Rebel's lawyer in 2006 and he should have known about it.
The judge however granted Tony Rebel leave, to appeal his ruling.
Lattibeaudiere sued Rebel in 1994, for allegedly using his music without crediting him.
If Rebel is not successful in the appeal, then damage will be assessed against him in favour of Lattibeaudiere.
Lattibeaudiere claims that Tony Rebel breached his copyright in the composition "Going Home", which was released under the title "La La Belle".
Lattibeaudiere claims that he was the one who wrote the music and Tony Rebel did not credit or pay him for it.
Tony Rebel has denied the claim.
