This study will determine the MDT of intravenous DTIC when administered in combination with a fixed dose of oral lenalidomide in subjects with metastatic malignant melanoma previously untreated with systemic chemotherapy. This study will evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of the combination of lenalidomide and DTIC. Subjects will be receive lenalidomide for 14 consecutive days and DTIC on day one of each 21 day cycle.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase I Safety Study of the Combination of Lenalidomide and DTIC (Dacarbazine) in Patients With Metastatic Malignant Melanoma Previously Untreated With Systemic Chemotherapy
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To determine MTD of intravenous DTIC during the first 2 cycles (6 wks) of treatment
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To evaluate the safety profile of combination lenalidomide plus DTIC, the preliminary efficacy of combination lenalidomide plus DTIC
- To define the recommended phase II doses of lenalidomide and DTIC when administered as combination therapy.

Lesions within a prior field of radiation may only be used as indicator lesions if there has been evidence of disease progression at that site.
- Prior history of malignancies (except for basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast) unless the patient has been free of the disease for at least 3 years.
