According to Launch.com, Suge Knight has been
hit with a lawsuit by Clear Channel subsidiary for not permitting company representatives
to remove a billboard on the roof of Tha Row's offices on Wilshire Boulevard
in Los Angeles.
Knight and Clear Channel were unable to agree
to the terms of a new lease on the billboard. Clear Channel representatives
were prevented from removing the billboard in August. The lawsuit was filed
September 10. Clear Channel is charging unfair business practices, defamation,
intentional interference with business, fraud and a host of other charges.
Clear Channel also says the billboard, which
features a cartoon drawing of rapper Crooked I on the toilet, has exposed them
to "contempt, ridicule, and obloquy."
Both parties are due in court in February of
next year, in an attempt to mediate the dispute before it goes to trial.
