Dr. Dre Wins Over Cops' Suit


Dr. Dre


He got triumph against a former police commander Gary Brown and Michigan's lawsuit over him for secretly recording and releasing their backstage confrontation during his 2000's 'Up In Smoke' tour.

Dr. Dre has emerged victorious in a court battle with cops who sued the star for secretly recording them on 2000's "Up In Smoke" rap tour. Former police commander Gary Brown and other Detroit, Michigan city officials filed suit against Dr. Dre, real name Andre Young, claiming they were filmed as they banned organizers from showing a video featuring naked women and violence at a concert at the Joe Louis Arena.

Brown alleged he was secretly taped during the backstage conversation, despite state laws in Michigan which protect people from being recorded without their knowledge. Brown maintained his privacy was violated by the footage, which later ended up in a DVD film about the tour, but Dr. Dre's attorney Herschel Fink argued there is no privacy for police while they are performing their public duties. On Saturday, 19 March, officials at Michigan Supreme Court sided with Fink by ruling in Dr. Dre's favor and throwing the case out.

Fink tells the Huffington Post he expected a judge to make a decision dealing with the broader issue of privacy, rather than just the concert event, but insists, "as I said in an e-mail to Dre, 'We'll take it.'" The "Up In Smoke" trek also featured Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube.
