Blerim Elmaji et al. Le Merritt – the lawyer representing Ahmed Arberry, who was shot dead while jogging in February – found himself without transporting to attend a court hearing in Brunswick, Ga., On June 4. Luckily, rapper J-Z was there to help.
Elmaji revealed on Instagram that he and Merritt J-Z received a call from Rock Nation, the entertainment company, around 1 a.m., allowing them to use their private jets.
Elmaji wrote in an Instagram post, “At 1am we started to lose hope until we received a call from the people of JZ in Rock Nation, who flew a plane for us to take part in this hearing with the family of Ahmed Arberry.” “Thanks for their support.”
Merritt also expressed his gratitude on Instagram. When he wrote on Instagram, “When you must stand in court to stand with your clients and religious protesters for justice … JZ sends his private jet,” he wrote on Instagram.
Certainly, these two lawyers attended the hearing in a timely manner and were able to stand with Arberry’s family as they presented the details of his murder to the court.
Arberry was fatally shot on February 23 while Gregory McMishley and his son Travis McMishley were jogging in a Georgia neighborhood. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigated the murder of Arberry and charged Gregory and Travis, as well as William Bryan, with the murder.
At Thursday’s hearing, new information was added to the case when Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Richard Dial testified that Arberry was dying that three shots were fired by Travis using a racist obscenity. At the end of the hearing, it was decided that all three would remain in police custody.
