he AP reports that a Los Angeles judge has thrown out a defamation lawsuit filed by Tyruss Himes, a former Tupac Shakur associate who alleged that reports by an L.A. TV station and XXL magazine falsely accused him of involvement in the unsolved killing of Notorious B.I.G. Himes claims that he lost a record deal because of reports that implicate him in the shooting. The judge dismissed the claim on the grounds that Fox affiliate KTTV-TV and XXL stories were constitutionally protected free speech.
