Michigan Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Dr. Dre Over Police’s Right To Privacy In Videos

The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled in favor of rap artist Dr. Dre in a case that involves whether police have the right to privacy when on duty. In a DVD produced of Eminem and Dr. Dre’s tour concert, police officers were shown threatening to shut it down. The police officers were warnings the artists that if they showed a sexually explicit video on the tour, they would be forced to shut it down. The lawsuit was filed by Detroit City Councilman Gary Brown. The court dismissed the lawsuit in a 6-1 ruling. This means that it is legal in the state of Michigan to record officers when on duty. However recording police officers in Illinois is illegal and it has been a controversial issue around the country. [MichiganMessenger]
