LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge has dismissed Axl Rose's lawsuit that
Activision Blizzard Inc. violated an agreement with him not to feature Slash in
a video game.
Court records show a Los Angeles Superior Court judge agreed with Activision
attorneys that there was no agreement between Rose and the gaming company to
prevent Slash's appearance in "Guitar Hero III."
A judgment in Activision's favor was entered Wednesday.
Rose sued Activision in November 2010 seeking $20 million in damages from the
company. He claimed he allowed Activision to use the song "Welcome to the
Jungle" in the game on the condition that Slash and his band, Velvet Revolver,
not appear in the game.
The suit said Rose has been trying to distance Guns N' Roses from Slash since
he left the band in 1996.
