Label Files Suit Against Time Warner: Death Row Records has filed a racketeering lawsuit against New York-based Time Warner, accusing the firm's top executives of conspiring with rap critic C. DeLores Tucker to obtain creative and financial control over the Westwood-based label, home to Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg. Time Warner Chairman Gerald Levin, Warner Music Group Chairman Michael Fuchs and Tucker are named as defendants in the suit, which charges the media giant with contractual interference, extortion and unfair business practices. A Time Warner spokesman said he had not seen the suit but that the company had done nothing improper. "We have no idea what C. DeLores Tucker has told people," the spokesman said, "but any suggestion that she had any authority to speak on behalf of Time Warner or Gerald Levin or Michael Fuchs is completely absurd."
