Tekashi 6ix9ine's Own Attorney Could Not Find The Controversial Rapper, Who Was Unable To Register His Stage Name

 The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board refused to grant Tekashi 6ix9ine a trademark for the name 6ix9ine, according to court documents obtained by AllHipHop. During a legal battle with another artist named Warren Hamilton, the artist attempted to register the moniker. He claimed to have been performing under the stage name SIX9 since 2007. In July, Hamilton filed a lawsuit against 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez.

"On September 6, 2022, the TTAB issued a final order upholding Hamilton's opposition and refusing registration of Hernandez's infringing 6IX9INE trademark after Daniel failed to file an amended response in the proceedings and responded to Plaintiff's motion of default." Moving on," wrote the rapper's lawyer, David Chase LanCarte.

LanCarte spent weeks attempting to reach an agreement with 6ix9ine's lawyer. Meloni had a heart attack, so their conversations were put on hold for a while. "On August 9, 2022, Defendant Hernandez's attorney, Robert Meloni," David wrote, "emailed me to explain that Mr. Meloni had a heart attack during the week of July 7, 2022 and 'had not returned to work.'" "Sir. Meloni inquired as to whether the Plaintiff would consider withdrawing the Plaintiff's motion."


Chase, David LanCarte eventually called Meloni to discuss 6ix9ine's excellent early disclosures in the case. Meloni revealed during the conversation that he hadn't spoken to the rapper in months. Robert also admitted that he didn't know where Tekashi was. LanCarte was also having difficulty locating the artist. "However, Plaintiff continued to seek Defendant Hernandez for service purposes," he said.

"Specifically, on September 9, 2022, I conducted additional research into other legal actions and matters in which Defendant Hernandez was named as a Defendant." According to my research, Daniel has a history of being difficult to locate and serve in other legal proceedings brought against him."

LanCarte was asked to serve Meloni because Tekashi 6ix9ine could not be found. Hamilton's attorney thought it was the best option. "Given the fact that Defendant Hernandez's exact whereabouts are unknown, as Daniel is constantly on the move and has security surrounding him, making personal service virtually impossible, Hamilton intends to file a separate alternative service motion asking this Court for permission to sue Defendant Hernandez personally serving his current attorney Robert Meloni, who continued to represent Mr. Daniel at the TTAB Process, despite his claim that he hasn't communicated with him."
