Dre's lawyer seeks dismissal of suit
Lawyers for Dr. Dre, Time Warner Inc. and Best Buy Co. have asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit brought by former Detroit city employees who were videotaped backstage at a concert five years ago. The request came Monday at a hearing before U.S. District Judge Paul Gadola in Flint.
The employees filed suit over video footage taken backstage at a July 6, 2000, concert at Joe Louis Arena that was part of Dr. Dre's Up in Smoke Tour, which also featured Michigan rapper Eminem. The video showed the Detroit employees in a boisterous argument with some of Dr. Dre's representatives. It was used in a documentary about the concert released two years later.
