On Wednesday, June 22nd, the wrongful death case filed against Suge Knight 7 years ago, has finally concluded.

This case was a product of a quarrel that occurred on set of the 2015 film, Straight Outta Compton.
Knight, Terry Carter, and Cle Sloan were the three involved. The fight ended with Knight hitting the other two men with his vehicle, and killing Carter.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the jurors were 7-5, in the plaintiff's favor. The mistrial decision was made after a unanimous one could not be reached.

The family of Carter has been attending each day of the trial and plans to bring the case again.

“We look forward to trying the case again to get victory for my dad. To get justice.” Crystal Carter told The Rolling Stones, one of the victim's two daughters.

Knight is set to spend 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to the manslaughter of Carter.

Knight was charged with murder, attempted murder, and attempted hit-and-run.
