Luciano - File

Veteran entertainer Jeptha McClymont, otherwise called Luciano, was absent from the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, where he was scheduled to have appeared in a litigation proceeding.

When the matter was called up, Resident Magistrate Vaughn Smith was advised that the artiste was not in court. However, come May 15, if Luciano is not present, then a default judgement will be made.

The claimant, Rudolph Morrison, who is a producer, is suing the entertainer for US$6,500 which he said is owed to him from US$10,000 that was paid to the artiste six years ago to secure an album deal.

Morrison said he paid the artiste the money, but sometime after, he (Morrison) decided not to do the album and demanded a refund. He said he has been given different stories by the artiste whom he last spoke to in 2013, and was told that he would have got his money back.

Morrison, who operates High Fence Records in Gordon Pen, says to date, he has only received US$3,500 and he is still unable to collect the rest despite his best efforts.
