Snoop Dogg won't have to ante up in the lawsuit where he was accused of assaulting and battering a dude after a Seattle concert back in 2005.

A jury decided Mr. Dogg doesn't owe Richard Monroe Jr. anything for the alleged attack. But some no-name performer, along with Doggy Style Music and others, will have to pay $449,000 for Monroe's injuries.
