The N.W.A Biopic Has Named In A "Wrongful Death Lawsuit"
BHR Hollywood Reports......Marion "Suge" Knight, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and others involved in the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton have been named in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the widow of a man who died after Knight allegedly hit him with his pickup truck,

Lilian Carter’s suit asserts that the studio and producers were negligent in providing adequate security on the set of Straight Outta Compton, despite the fact that Carter was not killed on the set.

Carter died of wounds he sustained as a result of being backed over by Knight’s truck in the parking lot of Tam’s Burgers, a fast food restaurant.

 But that’s okay; the suit also names Tam’s Burgers as a defendant, saying that the establishment knew the area surrounding the restaurant was dangerous, but had failed to station security guards to

deter violence.

First, the suit claims, Straight Outta Compton continued to film in Compton, California after Dr. Dre warned production members to keep Knight away from the set (the hip-hop mogul has been feuding with the Death Row Records founder for years). 

Second, Universal hired Cle "Bone" Sloan — an advisor who allegedly helped broker deals with local gangs so the film could shoot on-location — whose fight with Knight led to the hit-and-run.

Representatives for Ice Cube and Dr. Dre declined to comment, though Howard King, Dre's lawyer, told The AP that the charges were "preposterous." Representatives for Lilian Carter did not immediately reply to requests for comment.

The complaint reads: "This lawsuit concerns the tragic tale of how reckless corporate greed, disguised as the quest for authenticity, [led] to a foreseeable altercation that resulted in the death of a successful businessman."

"Mr. Knight denies any liability whatsoever," Knight's attorney Tom Mesereau tells Reports. "He was defending himself at all times.
