Estate of Tupac Shakur settles with another slain man’s family

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Competing lawsuits by the family of slain rap star Tupac Shakur and the family of another man shot to death two years later have ended with a settlement for an undisclosed amount.

Shakur died in Las Vegas after shots were fired into a car he was riding in on Sept. 13, 1996. At the time, he was facing an assault lawsuit brought by Orlando Anderson. Following Shakur’s death his family countersued Anderson for wrongful death, alleging he was involved in the Las Vegas shooting.

Anderson was shot to death May 29, 1998. His estate claimed that only hours before Anderson was killed his attorney was told he would receive a $78,000 settlement from the Shakur estate.

When no money was paid, a breach of contract suit was filed on behalf of Anderson’s family.

A. Ammar Kharouf, an attorney for the Shakur family, confirmed Thursday that a settlement had been agreed to and the lawsuit was dismissed July 27. Kharouf and Anderson family attorney Renee L. Campbell would not disclose the amount.
