NEW YORK, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Jay Z and Damon Dash came out on top of a $7 million lawsuit which claimed the duo stole the Roc-A-Fella records logo from Dwayne Walker, who filed the suit.

Walker claimed to have designed the logo for the record label under a verbal contract and said he was never paid for his work. His suit alleged copyright infringement and breach of contract.

Roc-A-Fella founders Jay Z and Dash said that the logo was professionally designed in-house.

U.S. District judge Andrew L. Carter ruled in favor of Roc-A-Fella, saying Walker did not provide enough evidence to prove his case.

Walker's lawyer said he plans to appeal the judge's decision.
