Suge Knight Ordered To Pay $5.5 Million

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.
