The Notorious B.I.G. wrongful-death trial has been postponed until next year (05).

The family of the late rapper, real name CHRISTOPHER WALLACE, is suing the LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT, holding it accountable for the JUICY star's 1997 murder.

BIGGIE SMALLS was shot in a drive-by killing as he sat in his car after a post SOUL TRAIN AWARDS party on 9 March 1997.

The trial was scheduled to begin today (05OCT04), but has now been pushed back until April (05), because a key witness was unavailable.

Perry Sanders, the lawyer representing the hip-hop star's mother, VOLETTA WALLACE, and others who filed the suit, says, "We are very disappointed but we'll be ready in April."
