The lawyers for slain black jogger Ahmaud Arbery have saluted JAY-Z for helping them seek justice. In an Instagram post, they revealed he chartered a private jet for them so they could attend a probable cause hearing for the defendants in Brunswick, Georgia.

S. Lee Merritt took to Instagram on Thursday to confirm the 50-year-old rap mogul and entrepreneur covered the costs of transporting himself and a colleague to court in Georgia.

"When you absolutely have to be in Court to stand with your client and righteous protestors for justice... Jay Z sends his private jet," he wrote under an Instagram snap of himself outside the plane.

"Court hearing in Brunswick, Georgia this morning. No flights to take us there last night. @leemerrittesq and I spent hours trying to find flights or cars. At 1am we started losing hope till we got a call from Jay Z’s people at Roc Nation who chartered a flight for us to attend this hearing with the family of Ahmaud Arbery," civil rights attorney Blerim Elmazi added.

Merritt also tweeted a photo of himself wearing a black face covering with the words "George Floyd" sewn on it.

He captioned the photo: "An early motion made by the defendants to the court was that I remove my mask. The court declined to consider the motion."

Arbery, 25, was shot and killed on February 23 in Glynn County, Georgia after being pursued and confronted by three white locals in pick-up trucks.

Three men were arrested in connection with the murder after video of the shooting surfaced online.
