Judge tells The Game and 40 Glocc to settle lawsuit

A judge today told two rappers and their lawyers to try to settle a lawsuit brought by one of the singers, who alleges the other pointed a gun at him and watched while his entourage beat the plaintiff.

“The best course of action is to listen to your lawyers,” Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Brugera said as she directly addressed The Game and 40 Glocc, who sat on opposite sides of her courtroom.

The rappers and their lawyers then went down four floors in the civil courthouse to request an appointment with a settlement judge. Trial of the case had been scheduled to begin today.

The 40-year-old plaintiff, whose real name is Lawrence White, alleges that he was at a party in Hollywood on July 7, 2012, and was leaving when he heard someone say, “Turn up, ‘N word.”‘

The suit filed in October 2012 alleges that The Game — whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor — aimed a gun at 40 Glocc’s head and cocked it as he tried to run away, but tripped. He claims he pleaded with The Game not to shoot him, and the defendant, now 35, tried to hit him with the butt of the gun but missed.

About 10 men with The Game, some pointing guns, began beating 40 Glocc and told him that if he fought back they would “end it right now,” the suit alleges.

The plaintiff did not resist for fear of his life, and eventually his assailants stopped their attack, according to his court papers, which state that The Game later posted two online videos of the beating that he and some of the men with him recorded.

The Game alleges his actions were in self-defense and that 40 Glocc has been threatening and harassing him for years.
