Suge Knight files lawsuit
Suge Knight filed a $106 million lawsuit Thursday against an incarcerated drug dealer he claims tried to extort money from him to get in good with the police. The suit names San Quentin State Prison inmate Michael Harris, who claims he provided more than $1.5 million in 1991 to help launch Death Row Records. "There was an effort to silence rap music and specifically Suge Knight, who was its icon," Dermot Givens, Knight's attorney, told the Associated Press on Friday, adding that Harris was a federal informant behind "a scheme to blackmail various entertainment industry entities" by threatening to sue. Harris' wife won a $107 million judgment against Knight last year. Latest news...
