Mich. Supreme Court sides with rapper Dr. Dre
DETROIT (KABC) -- A lawsuit involving Dr. Dre and several Detroit, Mich. police officers was dismissed on Saturday.
During a 2000 concert, the officers went backstage and told organizers power would be shut off if they showed a sexually explicit video.
That confrontation was recorded and included in a popular DVD highlighting the "Up in Smoke" national concert tour that also featured rappers Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. The officers filed the lawsuit, citing a privacy violation.
The Michigan Supreme Court overturned an appeals court's decision claiming that there's no right to privacy when police are doing their job.
