Two Men Dropped From Civil Suit Against Notorious B.I.G.

Attorneys representing

the family of Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace have dropped

an ex-Los Angeles Police Department officer accused of playing in a role in the

rapper’s murder from a wrongful death civil lawsuit against the LAPD.

David Mack, a former LAPD officer, was accused of helping orchestrate

the 1997 murder of Notorious B.I.G. in Los Angeles in a wrongful death lawsuit

filed by the Wallace family.

The lawsuit alleged that Mack orchestrated the hit and that

it was carried out by a man named Amir Muhammad.

Now, with just two weeks left, Mack has been dropped from the

lawsuit for unknown reasons and Muhummad will be dropped from the civil lawsuit

shortly as well.

Perry Sanders, attorney for the Wallace family, said the case

against the LAPD was still strong, despite the two main suspects in the murder

being dropped from the civil suit.

"This is a civil rights case against the city of Los Angeles,"

Sanders told the Los Angeles Times. "This has always been a case against

the city."

The civil lawsuit

will go to trial June 23 and the only remaining defendant in the case is the

city of Los Angeles.
