NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 News revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Debbie Feyerick's March 23, 1998 coverage of rapper Sean Combs' testimony in a trial that stemmed from a deadly stampede at an event he promoted at City College.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: In 1999, a New York Court of Claims judge found that Sean Combs and Heavy D were 50 percent responsible for the deaths at CCNY, and that CCNY itself bore the rest of the responsibility for turning security at the event over to Combs' team. Combs also reached an undisclosed out-of-court settlement with a woman who sued him for $2 million in connection with the stampede.
