BBC News reports that the wrongful death suit filed by Biggie's estate, against the City of Los Angeles, has been dismissed.

Originally filed in 2003, the case saw a mistrial in 2005 when the judge ruled that police officials had withheld documents and failed to provide statements made by a prison informant.

The lawyer for the estate, Bradley C. Cage, suggested to BBC that the case being dismissed could allow investigators to make arrests and to further analyze the case without fear of liability as part of the ongoing wrongful death suit proceedings.

But, both sides agreed that the suit could be re-filed later and Gage said it might take two to three years for that to happen, contingent upon any new developments. Gage maintains that he, and the estate, still don't have access to certain records, due to ongoing police and federal investigations.
