After putting things on hold following Juice WRLD's death, pop-punk band Yellowcard will now continue with the $15 million copyright lawsuit, Fader reports.

The case, which was first filed in October, claims that Juice WRLD's hit "Lucid Dreams" used the same melody as the 2006 Yellowcard song “Holly Wood Died.”

Now, according to court documents obtained by XXL, Juice WRLD and his co-defendants — Taz Taylor, Nick Mira, Grade A Productions, and Interscope Records — had until December 9 to respond to the claim. However, due to Juice's untimely death, Yellowcard has reportedly filed a motion to extend the deadline until February 4, 2020.

Last week, Richard S. Busch, Yellowcard's lawyer, spoke to Digital Music News and revealed that the case was being put on hold: "We’re still digesting the news."

Juice WRLD suddenly passed away on December 8, after suffering a fatal seizure at Chicago's Midway Airport.
