Mark Geragos, Brown's attorney, demeaned the importance of the case. "This is what gives lawyers and lawsuits a bad name is garbage like this," Geragos said, claiming to countersue
This all stems from a parking lot brawl that involved both Brown and Ocean on January 27 at Westlake Recording Studios.
Ocean, who suffered a finger injury, chose not to seek civil or criminal penalties after the brawl.
Duarte also claimed threats that the fight could have escalated into a shooting. The fight started after Brown parked in Ocean's parking spot at the studio.
