Knight must clarify finances

Death Row Records co-founder Marion (Suge) Knight must answer questions about the label’s finances when attorneys interview him in prison next month, a judge ruled.

Dick Griffey and Tracy Curry have filed a $75 million suit against the company, claiming they were pushed out by Knight and rapper-producer Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young.

Curry’s lawyers want Knight to provide documents dating from 1991. Knight’s lawyer objected that the request was too broad and would reveal trade secrets.

Judge Gregory O’Brien granted Curry’s request Wednesday but added that he will review some documents before releasing them.

“We’re pretty happy with the ruling,” said Death Row attorney John Patzakis.

Knight, 31, is serving a nine-year sentence for a probation violation resulting from a brawl hours before his star musician Tupac Shakur was fatally shot in Knight’s car Sept. 7.
