Suge Knight's Attorney Defines "The Smell Test In Life"



I ask you -- how would you define "the smell test in life"?

For me, it might be the faint smell of patchouli, a freshly showered Bo Derek in a bathrobe, a mild intoxicant and the sounds of Ravel echoing from the suite of a white-washed Mexican beach resort.

For Suge Knight attorney Marc Brumer, it's slightly different:
The fallen rap mogul's lawyer Marc Brumer says, "He's (Knight) an icon in the music industry. He walks in a room and he lights it up.

He had an expectation of security there. How someone came with a gun into a very VIP party, that just doesn't meet the smell test in life."
Actually, Marc is referencing the proper legal standard applicable to Suge's claims.

In fact, I believe the 11th Circuit recently clarified this doctrine in the seminal decision, Smell Teiste v. Mrs. Kissell.
