Hip-hop Producer Sues West Party Organisers

A veteran hip-hop manager is suing organisers of KANYE WEST's 30th birthday celebration, alleging he was injured by falling decorations at the rapper's event.
Steve Lobel, who manages Grammy-winning rappers Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, has filed suit against French fashion brand Louis Vuitton and New York events promoter Tony Berger, of Relevent Group LLC, in Queens Supreme Court.
Lobel was partying with West's celebrity pals, including Rihanna, Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Jay-Z, Usher and Mariah Carey, at the 7 June 2007 bash when the incident occurred.
A temporary panel at the venue - the fashion brand's New York store on Fifth Avenue - fell off the wall and allegedly struck the producer.
He is demanding unspecified damages from the company, insisting Louis Vuitton bosses used unstable panelling to "obscure the store's merchandise and create a club look".
Berger tells the New York Daily News, "We were aware of the incident. We reported it to our insurance carrier, and it is being handled by them."
