Lawsuit Against Eminem Dropped

A lawsuit against Eminem brought by Deangelo Bailey, who accused him of invading his privacy, has been dropped

A lawsuit against Eminem brought by sanitation worker Deangelo Bailey, who accused the rapper for invading his privacy by publicizing unreasonable information that put him in a false light, has been dismissed. Bailey filed the lawsuit in 2001 due to Eminem's "Brain Damage" released on 1999's "The Slim Shady LP," in which the rapper mentioned Bailey beat him up in a school bathroom, banging his head on a urinal and choking him.

Bailey, on the other hand, admitted that he picked on Eminem, but said he merely "bumped" him at school and threw a "little shove." Nevertheless, the state appeals court claimed in an opinion released Friday, the song of "Brain Damage" shouldn't been taken literally and that Bailey failed to present a genuine factual issue in the suit, so they came to a decision, which was dismissing Bailey's case.
