MIAMI -- The attorney for rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight says he plans to appeal a judge's decision to toss out a lawsuit Knight filed against hip-hop star Kanye West over a 2005 shooting in Miami.

Mark Brumer said Friday his client was disappointed in the judge's decision to grant a summary judgment for West and his companies.

Knight was seeking more than $1 million in damages from West. Knight was shot in the leg at a 2005 Miami Beach party hosted by West, whom Knight blames for lax security.

The shooter has never been identified, and the case is unsolved.

In Thursday's order, the judge concluded there's no evidence that a shooting at the party was foreseeable.

West's attorney, Adam Josephs, said the suit was ill-conceived from the beginning, adding he was gratified the court agreed.
