According to Law 360, California U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson ruled in the R&B star’s favor on his father’s charged that Ocean had defamed him in a 2016 Tumblr post. In the post, Ocean claimed that as a child his dad used a gay slur against a transgender waitress in his presence. The judge’s full written decision is expected this week.
