News: Cash Money Affiliate Sued, Female Victim Suffers "Lethal" Damages

Cash Money Records' Limp Bizkit member DJ Lethal is reportedly getting sued by a woman who claims she endured multiple damages to her vehicle and body from him last year.
Details of the lawsuit surfaced online early Saturday (November 24) morning.
The odds are stacked against Limp Bizkit member DJ Lethal in a brand new fender bender lawsuit -- because the woman he allegedly rear ended is represented by iconic personal injury superstar Larry H. Parker (he got one guy $2.1 million!). The woman -- Suraj Kayastha -- filed docs in L.A. County Superior court Nov. 5th, claiming she was driving on the 101 last December when Lethal (real name Leor Dimant) smashed into her car. According to docs, filed by LARRY H. PARKER (he'll fight for you!), the alleged victim suffered physical injuries, loss of wages, and damages to her car ... and she's suing for an undisclosed amount. (TMZ)
According to the victim's attorney's track record, he often wins his court cases.
Which is bad news for Lethal ... because according to Larry H. Parker's legendary commercials that have been running in L.A. for more than 20 years, Parker wins 91% of his cases ... and has recovered more than $1 BILLION in collective settlements for his clients. But Lethal's not scared, telling TMZ, "It was a fender bender. No one got hurt. Cops were on the scene and no one complained of injuries. I had no idea there was even a lawsuit." Lethal also skewers Larry Parker, telling us, "That Dude must be hurting for cash taking on a fender bender. I haven't seen a commercial from him in years. That commission on the 2.1 million guy must be long gone on hair plugs and Viagra." (TMZ)
Last summer, Limp Bizkit leader Fred Durst spoke on the group getting tough love from American fans.
"We don't play back home. We've boycotted America for many years now. I don't know, I just don't wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven't properly toured America since 2006. The reason? We just don't know what's going on in America. It's all about the new catchy thing and that's always changing. America is driven by record sales. It's the home of corporations. We're just Limp Bizkit, so we don't know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit. But here's the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it's over." (Kerrang!)
Back in March, Durst revealed plans to drop a Lil Wayne-assisted Bizkit record through Cash Money.
"I want to get it out there soon, as soon as we can," Durst, who finished an Australian tour with Limp Bizkit during the weekend, told Billboard.com. "The song is already done for the most part. I've got a couple little things I might poke around or punch in on my verse. And I want their guys to take a crack at the mix. I mixed it myself; I think it sounds very big, but I really love the way their guys are mixing stuff, so I want to see what they can do with it." (Billboard)
