A lawsuit involving producer Dr. Dre and other Detroit officials has finally been dismissed from court. City Councilman Gary Brown and a variety of officials filed the lawsuit in 2000, over an explicit video that was played during the tour. Officials in Detroit threatened to turn the power off if the video was played. The backstage conversation over the issue was taped and featured on the “Up In Smoke DVD.” Brown claimed that his rights were violated after Dre and company released the footage for commercial use. Councilman Brown’s lawsuit originally asked for $3 billion dollars. Dre had previously won a ruling, which forced then-Detroit Mayor, Dennis Archer, to write an apology letter to Dre.
