Hot 97 Wins Temporary Restraining Order Against Eviction

LATEST: Notorious New York City radio station Hot 97 has won a temporary restraining order against its SoHo office landlord, who wants the broadcaster evicted following a series of rap-related shootings. State Supreme Court Justice BERNARD FRIED yesterday (09MAY06) ruled that visitors to Hot 97 are allowed with four days' notice, but cannot bring guests with them. The station was also ordered to pay for an armed security guard to be at the building one hour before each guest arrives, and a telephone must be installed outside the entrance so the guard is able to call police. Hot 97's parent company Emmis Radio filed its complaint on Friday (05MAY06), arguing that landlord the Carpenters Union Pension Fund "is carrying out a premeditated plan that is designed to either put tenant out of business or at least drive tenant out of the premises." Alongside Hot 97, Emmis has two other radio stations in the building - WRKS FM and WQCD FM. Emmis and the Carpenters Union Pension Fund return to court on 19 May (06), reports AllHipHop.com. Last month (APR06), aspiring rapper GRAVY - real name JAMAL WOLLARD - became the latest victim in a series of shootings to take place outside the office. He was hit by a bullet in the buttocks. Hot 97 was also the scene of the shoot-out between members of 50 CENT and THE GAME's entourages in February last year (05), which left one man injured. And LIL' KIM is currently serving a jail term for lying to a grand jury over a 2001 shooting outside the Hudson Street building.
