Snoop and Priority Records will Attempt to Settle Lawsuit

snoop6.jpgAccording to the Associated Press, attorneys for Snoop Dogg and Priority Records have agreed to employ a third party mediator to settle a breach of contract lawsuit the rapper filed against the record label last year. Snoop’s lawyer, Kenneth D. Freundlich, agreed to the intervention on Monday, pending his client’s approval. Snoop is currently on tour in Europe with Sean “Diddy” Combs. Freundlich noted that he would be willing to make the rapper available to give a deposition in the case. Snoop filed suit against Priority in November 2006 claiming that the label owes him $2 million dollars in royalties. Priority has countered that the lawsuit should be thrown out because Snoop took too long to file it. Superior Court Judge Robert Hess set an August 27 date for an update hearing. Should the two sides fail to reach an agreement through mediation, they will move forward with a trial.
