Acording to AllHipHop.com, the CITY OF LOS ANGELES has been ordered to pay $1.1 million in sanctions to the family of the late NOTORIOUS B.I.G. That ruling, by a Federal Court Judge (1/20) is the result of intentionally withholding evidence during the family's civil lawsuit trial.
The award is the latest development in the ongoing saga surrounding the aftermath of B.I.G.'s murder. He was shot and killed MARCH 9, 1997, after attending a SOUL TRAIN MUSIC AWARDS after party at the PETERSEN AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM in LOS ANGELES. A mistrial was declared last year in the family's civil lawsuit after a judge discovered a police detective hid statements linking the killing to former Los Angeles Police Department officers DAVID MACK and RAFAEL PEREZ.
