  • Notorious B.I.G. Wrongful-Death Case Declared A Mistrial (

    The federal wrongful-death case of Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace abruptly halted Wednesday. After just three days of testimony, a federal judge in Los Angeles declared a mistrial, The Associated Press reports, following concern that police had been withholding evidence.
    The lawsuit, filed by Wallace's family's, seeks to lay blame for the New York rapper's death in the collective hands of the city of Los Angeles; the suit sought unspecified damages against the municipality.

    The Wallace family was not prepared to comment on the development Wednesday (July 6), according to their rep, but a press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. in Los Angeles on Thursday. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles city attorney's office would not comment until receiving the official ruling from the judge.

    No new trial date has been set. Last month the case was put on hold after it turned up that the lawyer for the Wallace family had not received a substantial amount of evidence from the LAPD. In the short amount of time the Biggie trial had been in session, several startling revelations came about, including a former FBI agent and a prison inmate linking Biggie's death to Death Row Records (see "Notorious B.I.G. Wrongful-Death Trial Halted After New Informant Surfaces").
