Judge Denies Motion in Notorious B.I.G. Suit

biggiechain.jpgOn Thursday (August 10) U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper denied a motion by the family of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G. to expand their lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles, the Associated Press reports. The family’s legal team had sought to include in the suit an allegation that rogue LAPD officer Rafael Perez was on duty at the Peterson Automotive Museum on the night of the rapper’s murder, and relayed his whereabouts to fellow officer David Mack. The suit alleges that Mack and Perez, along with suspected triggerman Amir Muhammad, conspired to commit the murder at the behest of Death Row Records principal Marion “Suge” Knight. Judge Cooper ruled that there was “no admissible evidence that Perez was on duty…at the scene of the murder.” Wallace family attorney Perry Sanders responded that the ruling means the case will remain essentially the same as when it was initially filed four years ago.
