Judge Tells Snoop & Priority Records They Have 3 Weeks to Settle

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge this week informed attorneys representing Snoop Dogg and Priority Records that they have three weeks to settle a $2 million breach of contract lawsuit brought by the rapper against the record label. According to the Associated Press, Judge Helen I. Bendix issued the ruling after the two sides said they were close to a settlement, but still need more time. Snoop filed the suit in November of 2006 after, he claims, Priority failed to pay him a $950,000 advance for his 2000 album The Last Meal. The veteran rapper also claims that the label released his greatest hits album without his blessing. Priority has countered that Snoop waited to long to file the suit and has asked that it be tossed on those grounds. Judge Bendix has ordered both parties back to court on March 26 for a status report. Depending on what she hears during that hearing she may either schedule trial-setting conference or refer the case to the Superior Court’s Alternative Dispute Resolution program.

    They better give Snoop that money.

    Corp’s are b&tc*es when it comes to this.
    That’s what “legal precedent” does for ya

    The logic Priority spits is like this example

    ” I know we stole/raped from you (and it was based on a legal/contractual matter) but you “took to long” to stand up for your rights so that means i was o.k. to violate…

    If your children are violated and you are scared or unable to complain right away does that make it o.k.? If you know a bank contractually owes you return on your CD for example when it matures? If it takes you a bit to “file” does that mean i was “o.k.”?

    HELL NO. Snoop or any “reasonable person” could have doubled that 950K in 8 years, so that’s why you gotta pay 2M.

    They should settle instead of stretching it out further, but I cant see it to be honest.

    “The Last Meal” was snoops last good album. Everything that he released afterward does not even come close. I hope snoop gets his cash for that masterpiece.

    The last meal was hands down fire and he sold almost 2 million of that album to so give him advance and move on.Priority is a graveyard that only makes bread from past projects(N.W.A,Eazy-E,Ice cube,Mack 10,No limit)Nothing currentley just like deathrow
