Judge Rules in Favor of Notorious B.I.G. Family
A Los Angeles Judge has reinstated a wrongful-death suit brought by the family of the late Notorious B.I.G. Judge Florence-Marie Cooper dismissed the lawsuit on March 21 after determining the family failed to make a deadline for bringing a claim against the city of Los Angeles and former police officers Rafael Perez and Nino Durden.
B.I.G.'s estate has been given 20 days to file a new lawsuit. The family of slain rapper B.I.G. -- real name Christopher Wallace -- claims police officers conspired to kill the rising rap star. The family also contends that the LAPD attempted to cover up their involvement.
