Suge Knight dropped the case against [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] for a 2005 shooting. Suge was shot in the leg while at a party that Kanye was hosting. Kanye wasn’t involved in the shooting, but Suge thought he should pay for his loss, pain and suffering.

According to

Suge Knight and Kanye West have finally reached a settlement in an ongoing lawsuit filed by the Death Row head.

As previously reported, Knight filed a $1 million lawsuit against West after he was shot in the femur during a 2005 VMA Awards after party where Ye was hosting.

Knight also says he lost a valuable earring at the club worth $135,000 and paid over $200,000 in medical expenses because Ye failed to have adequate security.

A federal judge tossed the $1 million lawsuit out in November however, a month before it was set to go to trial.

The judge concluded that there was no evidence that a shooting at the party was predictable.
Now according to the Associated Press, Suge recently dropped an appeal he filed against the ruling.
As a result, both sides are said to have reached a confidential agreement to settle court costs.
