The $107 Million Judgement That Ruined Death Row Voided After Drug Dealer's Ex-Wife Admits To Lies
(AllHipHop News) The saga surrounding Death Row Records has taken another astonishing twist, according to explosive new court documents.
According to court papers obtained by The Blast, the $107 million judgment against Suge Knight and Death Row Records has been voided.
Lydia Harris won the default judgment against Death Row Records in 2005.
The Harris' were triumphant because Knight declined to appear in court on various dates to explain questions about the label.
Lydia Harris then assigned the $107 million default judgement to a company called Conquest Media Group in return for a fee of $3 million.
When she assigned the agreement, Harris told Conquest Media Group that she had never filed for bankruptcy.
But Suge's attorneys recently managed to prove that Harris did file for bankruptcy in 1998 and never told anyone, which would have prevented her from suing anyone, including Death Row.
Lydia now insists her old lawyers urged her to lie about her own bankruptcy filing so they could collect on the massive judgement.
According to court documents, Suge and Lydia are now working together in an attempt to reach a private settlement regarding the $107 million.
Lydia Harris claims she never received a dime of the settlement money and that she was scammed by her lawyers, who collected all of the money.
The case is being forwarded to the FBI for further investigation.
The news is great news for Suge Knight's family, although its doubtful they will ever control the label's catalog again.
And Suge Knight is currently serving a 27-year prison sentence after copping a plea for killing a man named Terry Carter, who was run over by the incarcerated mogul's Ford F-150 during a deadly confrontation at a fast food restaurant in Compton in January of 2015.
