Christopher Wallace, better known as rapper Notorious B.I.G., suffered a legal setback to the tune of over $40,000 Monday. A civil court jury in Camden, New Jersey ordered Biggie to pay a total of $41,000 in damages, plus $1,700 in medical bills, to Nathaniel Banks.

Mr. Banks says he was beaten by Biggie and his entourage in May, 1995, when he was sent to pick up the rapper to play a show that ended up being canceled. Biggie, who has denied any wrong-doing, still faces criminal charges in the case.
