Plies - Rapper Plies Sued For $10 Million

Rapper Plies is facing another potentially costly legal battle over his involvement in a 2006 nightclub shooting.
Five people were injured during the rapper's performance in Gainesville, Florida after a fight between Plies' entourage and audience members broke out and gunshots were fired into the crowd.
Plies, real name Algernod Washington, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour charge of possession of a concealed weapon, which was found after the shooting incident, and he was sentenced to probation. His brother, Ronell Levatte, served three years in prison for his part in the incident.
Five men filed suit against the hip-hop star in 2010, claiming the rapper benefited from the incident as he used references to the shooting in his music. A judge dismissed the men's lawsuit in July 2010.
Now the plaintiffs have filed another lawsuit, and are seeking $10 million in damages, according to Allhiphop.com.
The star's attorney, Robert A. Rush, says, "The plaintiffs’ claims against my client continue to be without merit. We look forward to having this resolved in a court of justice."
