Hip-Hop producer DR. DRE was victorious in a second lawsuit involving the controversial "Up In Smoke" tour and DVD, writes ALLHIPHOP.COM. A $3 billion dollar invasion of privacy lawsuit against DR. DRE over a videotaped conversation featured on the "Up In Smoke" DVD was dismissed last week.
Judge JOHN MURPHY ruled that three former City of DETROIT employees had no reason to believe their conversations featured on the DVD were private. The trio had a conversation with producers, asking them to refrain from showing a video that contained nudity and a gunfight to audience members during a stop in DETROIT in JULY of 2000. They filed the $3 billion lawsuit after the "Up In Smoke" DVD hit stores in DECEMBER of 2000.
