  • Central Figure In B.I.G. Wrongful Death Lawsuit Dismissed From Case

    Voletta Wallace, mother of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G., dismissed Amir Muhammad, the man she accused of shooting her son, from a wrongful death lawsuit.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Wallace had named Muhammad as the triggerman who shot her son to death as he was stopped at a red light in Los Angeles, after attending an after-party for the Vibe Awards in 1997.

    Muhammad has repeatedly denied that he was the shooter and offered to take a lie-detector test.

    Despite facial qualities that resemble a composite sketch of the shooter that police drew from witness reports, Muhammad has never been questioned about the murder of B.I.G.

    The dismissal of Muhammad could have far reaching implications for the case, as he was central figure in the wrongful death lawsuit.

    Wallace claimed that former Los Angeles Police Department officer David Mack hired Muhammad on Marion “Suge” Knight’s urging, to shoot her son.

    Without Muhammad, reports said it will be difficult to prove that there was a conspiracy among the LAPD to help gun down her son.

    The LA Times report said that a confidential settlement was reached between the two parties, but no money was exchanged.

    Wallace is still suing the city of Los Angeles and David Mack, a former police officer and member of the Bloods street gang, who was convicted of bank robbery and is currently serving a 14-year prison sentence.

    Wallace offered to settle the case out of court for $105 million, but that figure was reduced to $18 million, which was rejected last month by City Council, according to the LA Times.

    The case was postponed earlier this month and the judge issued an order to conduct the trial in three phases.

    In the first phase, attorneys for Wallace must prove that Mack was responsible for hiring Muhammad, despite no murder weapons or witnesses linking Mack to the shooting.
