Snoop Dogg Cleared But Still Pays

Posted By on May 10, 2009

    Snoop Dogg has been cleared, kind of. As we previously reported, Snoop Dogg was cleared of an assault charge over a 2005 concert where a fan jumped on stage and was later injured. The man, Richard Monroe Jr, then sued Snoop and his entourage and company. On Friday (May 8th) a jury ruled that Snoop's label, Doggystyle Records along with Soopafly and other unamed parties, will have to pay Monroe nearly $449,000 in damages.

    "We're very pleased that the jury found that this incident was not something to be taken lightly," Monroe's attorney, Brian E. Watkins, said. Although he was given close to half a million dollars, Monroe sued for over $22,000,000.
