L.A. approves payment to Biggie's family
The Los Angeles city council voted Wednesday to approve a $1.1 million payment to the family of Notorious B.I.G. A mistrial in a federal lawsuit by Biggie's family led to the fine, which is intended to cover the cost of legal fees and other expenses. A judge ruled that police intentionally hid statements that linked the killing to two LAPD officers. The investigation into the murder of B.I.G. was revived earlier this month, and a retrial is expected by the end of the year. Biggie was shot and killed March 9, 1997, outside the Petersen Automotive Museum, where a Soul Train Awards afterparty was being hosted by Vibe magazine.
