Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, And Ice Cube Are All Being Sued For Wrongful Death By Terry Carter's Family

Filed under: Legal MattersDr. DreIce Cube

Things just do not get better for Suge Knight.

Not only is the 50-year-old facing murder as well as attempted murder charges, he's also being sued by Terry Carter's family for running him over that fateful night.

But Suge isn't the only one named in the wrongful death lawsuit. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube have also been called out in the case.

Terry's wife and children filed the lawsuit and are claiming both producers of Straight Outta Compton hired known gang members to protect the set and shoots in gang-infested neighborhoods.

The case is also claiming some of the gang members started the drama and threatened the rapper, which lead to his decision to drive through the parking lot recklessly and eventually running over Carter.

Carter's family is also suing the location where it happened. They're claiming Tam's Burgers often experience violent crimes in their parking lot so they should've had security to prevent things from happening.

Sad.

Terry's family is seeking unspecified damages in their lawsuit.

Suge Knight Pleads Not Guilty To Murder As Judge Denies The Rapper's Request For Reduced Bail

Filed under: Legal Matters

On April 30, Suge Knight plead not guilty to the murder of Terry Carter.

His request to have his bail reduced from $10 million to $5 million was also DENIED.

The request was a tad outrageous, considering the bail had already been reduced from $25 million at a previous hearing.

Hmm, it seems like Suge should be grateful for the fact that his bail was decreased to begin with, especially when you consider the severity of his crime and the incriminating video that comes along with it!

So, do YOU agree with the judge?

Suge Knight's Bail Is Dropped By MILLIONS, And His Hit-And-Run Charges Have Changed! See Suge's Good & Bad News HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad Sad

Things might be looking up for Suge Knight in the midst of his murder trial.

It's been reported that this morning, the judge in his trial substantially reduced the former rap mogul's bail from $25 million to $10 million.

Knight's lawyer is optimistic that his client can make bail as early as today.

The judge also dropped one of the two hit-and-run counts in Knight's fatal parking lot car accident in the wake of a suspicious testimony from Cle Sloan — whom Knight allegedly tried to hit with his truck.

We wonder if this drop in bail has less to do with the charge changes and more with the 49-year-old's court-disrupting health problems?

Not all the music exec's news was good. At the end of the preliminary hearing, judge Ronald Coen ruled that there WAS enough evidence for Knight to stand trial on murder and attempted murder charges.

Cle Sloan Won't Testify Against Suge Knight For Running Him Over — Judge Deems Witness 'Deceptive' To The Trial!

Earlier this year, it was reported that music exec Suge Knight was charged with attempted murder for running over a man outside of a burger stand.

Also injured from the incident was actor Cle ‘Bone' Sloan who was crushed beneath the wheels of the music mogul's pickup truck.

Even though the 45-year-old suffered two fractured ankles, torn ligaments, and head wounds, he is refusing to testify against Knight.

Shortly after bail was set at $25 million, a much higher price than the producer hoped for, the 49-year-old collapsed and subsequently hit his head on a chair.

Paramedics quickly arrived on the scene after which they took an unconscious Suge to the hospital. There is no update on his current condition.

Suge Knight Claims He Fired His Lawyers & That He's Suffering From Blindness?!

The third time is definitely NOT the charm for Suge Knight.

The rapper was hospitalized for a third time in one month after appearing in court to face murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges.

Suge told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday that he had been receiving inadequate medical care since being jailed in January over the alleged hit-and-run death of his friend, Terry Carter.

The 49-year-old said he had been suffering from blindness in one eye and only 15 percent vision in the other, and had lost 35 pounds while in custody.

Suge also stated he had difficulty comprehending the proceedings.

In his court appearance, Suge told the judge that he fired the lawyers present and wanted to represent himself. While Suge tried to speak out during the proceedings, the judge apparently admonished him for doing so, which made Suge curse under his breath.

The judge wanted to transfer the Death Row Records founder's cases, but Suge had already been hospitalized again.

Another hearing has been set for March 9th, so we'll keep you posted on any updates.

Suge Knight Hospitalized With 'Stomach Problems' Right Before Court Hearing

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersScary!

On Thursday morning in West Los Angeles, Suge Knight was taken via ambulance from Airport Courthouse to a nearby hospital where — according to his attorney David Kenner — he was experiencing "stomach problems."

The rap mogul was supposed to report at 8:30 a.m. to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty for an arraignment unrelated to his existing murder charges.

In September, the 49-year-old and comedian Katt Williams allegedly made criminal threats against Leslie Redden, a celebrity photographer. They have already been charged for "strong-arm robbery", in which she claims they stole her camera in a Beverly Hills alley.
