You could use this:

In[80]:= n = RandomInteger[{-10, 10}, {10, 4}]

Out[80]= {{-9, 10, -2, 0}, {-1, 1, 3, 3}, {-7, -1, 0, 3}, {-5, 7,
10, -10}, {-7, 9, -8, -4}, {2, 2, -6, -6}, {5, 4, 1, 4}, {-1, -2,
7, -9}, {-8, -2, 6, 4}, {0, 6, -6, -9}}

In[81]:= Select[n, FreeQ[#, -9] &]

Out[81]= {{-1, 1, 3, 3}, {-7, -1, 0, 3}, {-5, 7, 10, -10}, {-7,
9, -8, -4}, {2, 2, -6, -6}, {5, 4, 1, 4}, {-8, -2, 6, 4}}
