Teen whose traffic stop sparked change in LMPD policies sues department

Teen whose traffic stop sparked change in LMPD policies sues department A Louisville teen whose traffic stop went viral and sparked debate about police policies is now taking legal action against the Louisville Metro Police Department. According to a lawsuit, Tae-Ahn Lea is suing several LMPD officers, citing biased policing. Body camera footage shows Lea being pulled over for an improper turn last year in west Louisville. Officers questioned Lea and asked to search the car. When Lea said no, he was removed from the vehicle, which belonged to his mother. Minutes later, he is seen being handcuffed as a K-9 officer searches the car. Less than a month after WLKY spoke with Lea, LMPD issued changes to the department's traffic stop policy.

Salt-N-Pepa's former DJ, Spinderella, is suing the duo for fraud and breach of contract, claiming the famous twosome has been scamming her out of millions of dollars for decades.

TMZ obtained the lawsuit in which the DJ says she's been getting financially shafted for 20 years.

Spin claims she started being financially phased out in 1999 when the legendary group released its "Best Of" album. She said she was promised a third of the royalties from the album, but never got it, despise getting a phone calling indicating she was getting $125,000.

She also alleges that she was excluded from Salt-N-Pepa's VH1 TV show that was based on the group's history. She claims she was promised one third of the group's fee for the show, but got way less than that.

The pile on continued, as the disgruntled DJ added that she got no compensation for her appearance with the duo at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.

Further, TMZ said Spin was shocked to find out that the twosome had been paid more than $600,000 in royalties over the past decade. Spin says she hasn't received any royalty money.

In addition to breach of contract, Spin is suing for trademark infringement, alleging that Salt-N-Pepa continue to use her to promote performances.

Spinderella's fallout with the group has been ugly.

Zion Williamson sues marketing firm to get out of contract

Zion Williamson sues marketing firm to get out of contract Just one week until he’s slated to become the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Zion Williamson is facing a legal hurdle. The former Duke star signed a marketing deal with Gina Ford and Prime Sports back in April, just five days after the forward declared his intent to enter the NBA Draft. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the deal included a clause that it could not be terminated for five years. Williamson and his camp, attorney Jeffrey S. Klein included, are now suing under the guise that said agreement violated North Carolina law.

In May, she revealed that she's been kicked out of the group via email earlier in the year.

"I'm deeply saddened to share with all the #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella fans that I will not be performing on the #NKOTB Mixtape Tour," she wrote on Instagram. "Despite my participation in promoting the tour and being highly publicized as one of the acts, in January 2019 I received a 'termination' email from #SaltnPepa excluding me from performances with the group."

Clearly feeling blindsided, she went on to accuse the "Push It" singers of "misleading fans."

"I refuse to participate in misleading fans, ticketholders, and others who -- based on all the advertising -- were anticipating seeing the iconic #SaltnPepa and #Spinderella trio," she added.
