Lawyers accuse Biggie's family of lying
Lawyers for the city of Los Angeles accused Notorious B.I.G.'s family of going to "odious" and "absurd" lengths -- including lying -- to "satisfy their ambition to extract hundreds of millions of dollars" from the city, according to papers filed in federal court. Los Angeles filed the papers Tuesday in response to the family's allegations that the city had withheld documents and covered up police misconduct while defending a wrongful death lawsuit. The family's statements were in response to a judge's ruling that police intentionally hid statements that linked Biggie's killing to two LAPD officers. 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. A mistrial in a federal lawsuit by Biggie's family led to a $1.1 million fine for the city in January. Latest news...
