'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' (ALL) Slapped with Another Lawsuit Settled

by Rainier on Dec. 9, 2010 @ 5:57 p.m. PST

Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

If you thought that the 2007 class action lawsuit (and another settlement in 2009) was the end of GTA: San Adreas' legal troubles then you are sadly mistaken as former male model and Cypress Hill back-up singer Michael S. Washington has filed lawsuit against Rockstar claiming that game protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson is based on himself after he was invited by Rockstar in 2003, but never heard anything further from the developer after an initial two hour interview telling the tale of his troubled youth. Mr. Washington also claims he had no prior knowledge of the game until June 2010 when his nephew showed him the game.

Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.

Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.
