The attorney for Marion "Suge" Knight says the rap mogul plans to appeal a judge's decision that dismissed his lawsuit against Kanye West.

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

Knight's attorney, Mark Brumer, said Friday his client was disappointed in the judge's decision.

The shooter has never been identified.

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 lawsuit was ill-conceived from the beginning.
