While The Game preps for the December release of his R.E.D. album, his name’s been continually in the headlines for legal issues. As previously reported, his old legal team filed a suit in an L.A. County Superior Court claiming that The MC owed them over $30,000 in legal fees. Now with that case still pending, Game can breathe easier knowing that another lawsuit filed against him has been thrown out.
Three police officers in North Carolina sued Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, for defamation of character. The cops claim that in 2006, Game libeled, slandered and misappropriated their names to promote his Stop Snitchin, Stop Lyin’ DVD. The officers asked the appeals court to review the case after its August 2008 dismissal. The North Carolina Court of Appeals reviewed the lawsuit and dismissed it again.
Officer Hien Nguyen, Mattherew Brown, Ryan Childrey, Romaine Watkins and David Gregory were involved in his arrest before a scheduled performance in Winston-Salem. The officers arrested Game at a local mall after security asked him to leave for causing a disturbance.
