The court plans to hear arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit by a Detroit councilman and others who say they were illegally videotaped backstage at a 2000 concert at Joe Louis Arena.

Gary Brown was a police official at the time. He warned concert organizers that power would be turned off if they showed a sexually explicit video. The confrontation was taped and later included in a DVD of the "Up In Smoke" tour, featuring Eminem and other artists.

Brown says his privacy was violated by the video. Dr. Dre lawyer Herschel Fink says there's no privacy when police are doing their job. Dr. Dre is a defendant but won't be attending the Supreme Court arguments.
