A judge has ruled to withhold from Suge Knight's lawyers the identities of witnesses in the murder case against the Death Row Records co-founder, according to Billboard.
Suge's lawyers originally sought the information and addresses of several potential witnesses, including three confidential informants, in an effort to independently interview them to prepare a defense for Knight. But prosecutors objected, pointing to Knight's history of violence and intimidation.
On Friday, after meeting privately with a prosector and a detective, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen ruled in their favor, claiming they'd shown sufficient reason to request the protection of the witnesses' identities.
