: "LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rap impresario Marion 'Suge' Knight has been ordered to pay $107 million to a woman who said she helped found his ground-breaking music label, but was pushed out after Knight realized how valuable Death Row Records was.
A Los Angeles judge ordered Knight to pay Lydia Harris $47 million in economic and noneconomic damages and $60 million in punitive damages, according to a March 9 order.
Superior Court Judge Ronald Sohigian issued the default judgment after ruling Knight and his attorneys failed to comply with his order to share evidence with Harris and her attorneys in preparation for trial.
Neither Knight's lawyer, Dermot D. Givens, nor his publicist could be reached for comment.
David Casselman, an attorney for Harris, said his client faced a new battle in trying to collect from Death Row and Knight."
