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 Hiphopwired.com:

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.
