Notorious B.I.G. Trial Postponed Until Next Year

biggiechain1.jpgOn Monday (June 19) the federal judge presiding over proceedings in the Notorious B.I.G. wrongful death suit postponed the retrial until early next year. The Associated Press reports that Judge Florence-Marie Cooper, who declared a mistrial in the case last year, has set a new trial date of January 16 in order to allow the Wallace family’s legal team ample time to obtain information from the City of Los Angeles. Earlier this month, Judge Cooper sided with the family after attorneys for the defense claimed the family’s legal team had deceived the court by claiming to have no prior knowledge of testimony from a jailhouse informant implicating rogue LAPD officers in the rappers murder. After hearing an explanation from Wallace family attorney Perry Sanders, Judge Cooper ruled in favor of the family and accused the City of concealing “hundreds of documents” related to the case.
