(Reuters) – A widow has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Marion Suge Knight, accusing the rap mogul of carelessly striking and killing her husband with his pickup truck during a fight outside a Southern
If the allegations are true that Suge Knight intentionally ran over a person with his truck after an argument, I think a civil judgment against him may be likely. However, trying to hold Ice Cube and Dr. Dre and their production company liable, will be a much tougher legal battle. The argument made in the lawsuit is that the meeting where the incident took place was set up by the production company. It will probably have to be proven that the officials were acting on behalf of the production company and that they knew or should have known that this type of incident was likely or at least probable. We will continue to monitor and follow this case.
