Closure for BIG

Notorious BIG’s wrongful death suit has finally been dismissed and we can finally let the rapper rest in peace. It’s been 13 years since BIG was shot dead in Los Angeles at the age of 24. While his murder has never been solved, his mother Voletta Wallace filed a lawsuit against LA city officials and the LAPD in 2002, blaming them for her son’s death. She won the case in 2006 and was awarded $1.1 million by US District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper. However, the ruling was overturned when it was revealed that the Wallace family had withheld info from the court. After several hearings, federal court Judge Jacqueline Nguyen dismissed the lawsuit last week.
