LOS ANGELES (AP) — The widow of a man who died after he was run over by a pickup truck driven by Marion “Suge” Knight has sued a studio and key figures involved in the upcoming film “Straight Outta Compton.”
Lilian Carter, the widow of Terry Carter, filed the wrongful death lawsuit on Wednesday in Los Angeles against Universal Studios, Inc., Knight and rappers Dr. Dre and Ice Cube.
The suit alleges Universal was negligent by continuing filming in Compton, California, after Dre warned the production to keep Knight away. Knight, the co-founder of Death Row Records, has quarreled with Dre for years.
Carter was killed in a parking lot near the set of the film.
Emails sent to representatives for the defendants were not immediately returned. Knight has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the death of Carter.
