Suge Knight just can't catch a break. In court documents obtained by, Suge complains that a hotel worker at The Shore Club in Miami, the hotel where he alleged he was shot on August 28th, 2005, "converted" one of his diamond earrings during the incident.

The Morgans Hotel Group, which owns The Shore Club, is seeking to have the case moved back to Florida from the Bankruptcy court in Los Angeles, as all witnesses, police and other people related to the shooting. The case was moved to bankruptcy court because Knight filed for Chapeter 11 in April 2006.

"Knight and the trustee subsequently entered into an agreement whereby the the trustee sold to Knight's bankruptcy estate's right to sue for injuries and damages at The Shore Club." Morgans contends that bankruptcy court has no jurisdiction in this matter. Morgans says, "The motion to transfer is based on the grounds that plaintiff's action was brought in an improper venue as the substantial part of the events/omissions occurred at The Shore Club. Further, the law of the state of Florida applies to this action and a significant number of witnesses reside in Florida."
