Philip Layfield and Kimberly Whang of Layfield & Wallace, APC filed a lawsuit on behalf of Leslie Redden, a female photographer and photo journalist, for damages that she suffered during the September 5, 2014 assault and battery by Suge Knight, Katt Williams, and an unknown female. Leslie Redden was waiting outside of FilmOn studios in Beverly Hills when Suge Knight rapidly approached Ms. Redden while threatening physical harm. Ms. Redden turned and attempted to flee but was pushed to the ground by an unknown female assailant who was in the company of Katt Williams. During the assault, Ms. Redden was allegedly knocked unconscious and suffered severe physical and emotional injuries. While Ms. Redden was lying on the ground, Katt Williams forcibly took Ms. Redden’s $3,000 camera. In the aftermath, Katt Williams made several false statements to the media in which they allegedly distorted the events.
