A California State
appellate court upheld a $5.5 million dollar judgment against Death Row Records,
in regard to a lawsuit filed by Kurupt’s former managers.
Lamont and Kenneth
Brumfield filed the lawsuit against the label, claiming that the label conspired
to steal the artist and cheat them out of significant royalties.
The initial ruling
in April awarded the Brumfield’s $14 million, which the judged reduced.
Knight was also
hit with a lawsuit by a California law firm, alleging that the imprisoned mogul
fraudulently sold or gave away four properties in the Los Angeles area, to avoid
paying almost $142,000 a judge ordered him to pay the firm.
Knight has been
incarcerated since June 27. He was found guilty of violating his parole for
striking a Hollywood area parking valet.
