New York City's Governors Ball doesn't have quite the cachet (or celebrity sightings) of Coachella, or the sprawl of Bonnaroo, but it's no slouch in the ever-increasing summer festival lineup.

The three-day festival took over Randall's Island this weekend, and while it'd be impossible to recapture all three days' worth of music, here are some highlights.

Kobe's Accuser Must ID Herself in Lawsuit

RULED: The name of the Colorado woman who accused Kobe Bryant, 26, of sexual assault will be made public in the civil lawsuit she is pressing against him, federal Judge Richard Matsch decided Wednesday. In making the ruling, the jurist said that allowing the 20-year-old to remain anonymous could be misconstrued by a jury as a prejudgment in the case. Lawyers for the woman – who intends to follow through with the case – had asked Matsch to protect her identity, saying she has faced death threats. Prosecutors dropped felony charges against L.A. Laker Bryant last month after his accuser refused to testify.

OutKast's Smoking Gun Poster Shot Down

CRITICIZED: A poster showing OutKast's Andre 3000 holding a smoking gun has been branded "irresponsible" by Britain's Advertising Standards Authority, reports Reuters. The watchdog group upheld a complaint that the ad could be seen to glorify gun use but rejected another claim that it promoted racial stereotypes. The advertiser, record label BMG, had said it believed the poster for the hip-hop duo was no more likely to provoke violence than ads for James Bond movies. "We regret the ruling because OutKast are the last group that we believe you could level those charges against," said BMG press director Paul Bursche.
