Three months after it was initially dismissed, a woman who accused Snoop Dogg of sexual assault brought the case against the rapper back to life. An Anaheim, California, club hosted a Snoop Dogg concert on May 29, 2013, and Jane Doe, an aspiring model, was allegedly sexually assaulted by the rapper and his colleague Bishop Don “Magic” Juan (Donald Campbell).
On February 9, the Jane Doe accuser filed the case in a federal court in Los Angeles. Snoop Dogg, in response, urged a federal judge to dismiss the suit, stating the charges were “implausible and baseless”. It was revealed by Rolling Stone that the rapper denied forcing an anonymous lady into a sex act in a recording studio restroom over nine years ago, according to a 17-page dismissal filed on February 24 and acquired by the publication.
“Nothing remotely resembling plaintiff’s story about defendant Calvin Broadus ever happened. He vehemently denies ever engaging in any sex act with the plaintiff or assaulting or battering her,” his lawyers wrote in court filings. According to a Snoop Dogg spokeswoman, no record of the woman ever working for the rapper was found when asked about her employment history.
At that point, she withdrew her complaint “without prejudice” in response to the rapper’s motion to dismiss it for missing a filing deadline. They’ve now resubmitted the case to California’s district court on behalf of the woman. It includes accusations of sexual abuse and battery against the artist, as well as Bishop Don Magic Juan, a colleague. Defamation charges have been added that suggest Snoop Dogg made threats against Doe on social media.
Reports from the courtroom claim that following a private mediation between the accuser’s lawyers and those for Snoop Dogg’s record label, he made threats. He intimidated the plaintiff via Instagram into not exercising her constitutional right to engage in mediation. This is gold digger season. Be careful, Nefews, keep ya guards up,” Snoop Dogg commented on Instagram the day before the mediation hearing, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit stated: “Defendant Snoop Dogg’s pattern and practice of threats, retaliation, harassment, and intimidation unsurprisingly did not stop there.” The lawsuit also claims that despite the alleged victim wanting anonymity, her identity was revealed by a spokesperson for the rapper after the initial finding.
“By releasing Plaintiff’s name, Defendant Snoop Dogg yet again demonstrated his pattern and practice of scaring, intimidating, retaliating against, and harassing victims of sexual harassment, assault, and battery, by effectively calling on his millions of followers to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against Plaintiff,” the lawsuit said.
In addition to that, Snoop Dogg’s crew stated: The complaint refiled today against Snoop Dogg by ‘Jane Doe’ and her attorney is meritless.” It comes on the heels of Jane Doe’s lawyer dismissing her earlier complaint about the alleged matter just a few months ago. This is the third time he’s tried, so he brushed off a previous complaint.
“As before, this refiled complaint is riddled with and predicated upon falsehoods and inaccuracies. Moreover, as Jane Doe and her attorney know or should know, Jane Doe has never been Snoop Dogg’s employee. In March 2022, the plaintiff and her attorney were served with a motion to dismiss by legal counsel for Snoop Dogg.
That motion made clear to Jane Doe and her attorney the false nature of Jane Doe’s allegations against Snoop Dogg. Jane Doe’s attorney then in April 2022 asked the court to dismiss his client’s complaint. Snoop Dogg looks forward to proving the falsity of these allegations.”
