Default Judge Dismisses Privacy Suit Against Dr. Dre

Quote:


A judge sided with Dr. Dre earlier this month, dismissing an invasion of privacy case filed against the super producer by former Detroit officials.

Back in October, as reported by the Detroit Free Press, three former employees for City of Detroit sued Dr. Dre (real name: Andre Young) for videotaping a conversation backstage at a concert in 2000 without their knowledge.

During the conversation -- which involved Greg Bowens, spokesman to then-Mayor Dennis Archer, then-police spokeswoman Paula Bridges and then-police Commander Gary Brown -- the plaintiffs asked concert producers to refrain from showing a video containing nudity to an audience during a July 2000 concert, but they were videotaped in doing so.

The footage appeared on "Up In Smoke Tour" DVD, which was one of the highest-grossing tours in hip-hop history. It featured performances by Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Warren G. and numerous others.

Circuit Judge John Murphy ruled that the city workers had no reason to think the conversation was private.

The Detroit Free Press said that Murphy's ruling was a surprise, because in October, he said he was inclined to let the case go to trial.
