The lawsuit against Snoop Dogg resumes in court after a previous dismissal

A woman who accused Snoop Dogg of sexual assault has revived her lawsuit against the rapper, three months after the case was initially dismissed.

Accused Jane Doe first filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court on February 9, alleging that Snoop (real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) and his associate Bishop Don “Magic” Juan (Donald Campbell) assaulted her after to attend the rapper’s concert at the Club Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim, California, on May 29, 2013.

In response, Snoop Dogg asked a federal judge to dismiss the lawsuit, saying the allegations were “unbelievable and false.”

In the 17-page dismissal filed on February 24 and obtained by Rolling Stone, the rapper denied cornering an unidentified woman in a recording studio bathroom nearly nine years ago and sexually assaulting her.

“Nothing remotely similar to Plaintiff’s story about Defendant Calvin Broadus ever happened. He strongly denies engaging in any sexual acts with Plaintiff or assaulting or beating her,” his attorneys wrote in court papers.

When Rolling Stone asked if the woman had ever worked for Snoop, a spokesperson for the rapper said there were no employment records for the woman. “She was not employed by Snoop Dogg or any of his companies and provided no evidence to support her claim that she worked for Snoop Dogg and/or his companies,” Snoop’s rep said.

The accused later dropped his lawsuit “without prejudice” after the rapper asked the court to dismiss it due to the filing deadline.

Now, the woman’s legal team has refiled the lawsuit in California district court. In it, the accusations of sexual assault and sexual injuries against the rapper and his partner Bishop Don Magic Juan are collected again. There are also libel lawsuits alleging that Snoop Dogg used social media to threaten Doe (via Rolling Stone).

According to Rolling Stone, the lawsuit alleges that, following a private mediation between the accuser and Snoop Dogg’s legal team, the rapper used Instagram to “threaten, intimidate and coerce the plaintiff without exercising her constitutional rights to participate to take in the intervention.” “.

The lawsuit cited a now-deleted Instagram post shared the same day as the mediation session, in which Snoop Dogg wrote: “Fortune seeking season is here, beware Nefews, keep your guard up.”

The lawsuit said: “Defendant Snoop Dogg’s pattern and practice of threats, retaliation, harassment and intimidation did not stop there.”

The suit also claims that despite the alleged victim wanting to remain anonymous, a spokesperson for the rapper revealed his identity after the initial discovery.

“By releasing the Plaintiff’s name, Defendant Snoop Dogg has again demonstrated his pattern and practice of scaring, intimidating, extorting victims of sexual harassment, assault and assault, effectively calling upon his millions of followers to threaten, intimidate and retaliate against the complainant. ,” the law says.

“The complaint filed today against Snoop Dogg by ‘Jane Doe’ and her attorney is baseless,” a spokesperson for Snoop Dogg said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “It comes after Jane Doe’s lawyer voluntarily dismissed her previous complaint a few months ago.

Snoop Dogg’s team added: “Today’s complaint filed against Snoop Dogg by ‘Jane Doe’ and her attorney is baseless. It comes after Jane Doe’s attorney voluntarily dismissed his previous complaint a few months ago in relation to the alleged affair.He also dismissed a previous complaint – this is the third attempt.

“As in the past, this new complaint is full of lies and inaccuracies. Additionally, as far as the unknown person and her attorney know, the unknown woman was never an employee of Snoop Dogg. In March 2022 , the plaintiff and her attorney received a motion to dismiss from Snoop Dogg’s legal counsel. That motion made the false nature of Jane Doe’s allegations against Snoop Dogg clear to Jane Doe and her attorney. Jane Doe’s attorney asked the court in April 2022 to dismiss her client’s lawsuit. to prove these allegations false.”
