Detroit officials reportedly attempted to sue Dr. Dre and Eminem for recording and releasing a 2000 confrontation they had backstage during a concert at the Joe Louis arena, claiming that they had no right to put in their Up In Smoke national concert tour DVD, but the case has been dismissed!
According to legal reports, Brown warned organizers that power would be turned off if they showed a sexual explicit video during the concert, which was being taped for behind-the-scenes footage. Brown has since argued that his privacy was violated when this exchange was released, but Dre's lawyer, Herschel Fink, argued successfully that there is no privacy when a policeman is doing his job.
Fair enough, we'd say! Sucks for him, but the law is the law!
