Nightclub Shooting Victims Sue
It happened during a rap concert nearly two years ago. Now, the victims are suing the rapper Plies and his record label.
They say they're trying to set an example.
"If they're going to have these lyrics, so violent, there's no need obviously to act it out," said the victims' attorney Christopher Chestnut.
But the rapper's attorney says the lawsuit is directed at the wrong people.
Plies was not charged with attempted murder in the incident. His attorney says he even voluntarily gave the victims ten thousand dollars to cover medical bills.
No word on when the matter could go to court.
