Rap Mogul Fails to Appear for Court-Ordered Hearing

April 2, 2006 - Posted at 1:10 p.m. CST

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A California attorney says upcoming court

action could mean a ``death sentence for Death Row Records.''

Yesterday, rap-music mogul Suge Knight skipped a

court-ordered hearing over control of the company -- one of several

hearings he's missed during the ongoing legal battle.

He lost a 107 million judgment last year to former associate

Lydia Harris, who said she helped start the rap-record empire. Now,

lawyers for her ex-husband -- who's in prison for dealing drugs --

are trying to get some of that money.

They're planning to ask that Knight be held in contempt and

jailed until he attends a hearing to disclose his assets. Attorneys

say they'll ask that the company go into receivership, allowing its

music library to be auctioned off. As one attorney put it, Knight

has ``had his last chance.''

Knight's attorney declined to comment.
