The family of slain US Capitol Rioter Ashli Babbitt is now moving ahead to sue the DC police for failing to reveal the identity of the cop who shot her dead on January 6th.
Moreover, local media outlets spoke about the mega lawsuit that the family plans on pursuing, which also goes about demanding access to viral video footage, a number of statements from witnesses present at the crime scene, as well as a long series of documents that were gathered to be a part of the investigation being carried forward by the Metropolitan Police Department too.
The lawsuit was reportedly filed just last week and comes into play right after a number of lawyers from Babbitt’s family claim that the Metropolitan Police Department failed to provide any form of response that related to the Freedom of Information Act.
This particular request was moreover filed by Ashli’s husband, who requested records that would reveal the investigation’s findings, as well as the identity of the shooter, involved too.
Meanwhile, the legal time has also gone about stating how it plans on moving forward with a separate lawsuit against the US Capitol Police Department. And that includes demands worth more than $10 million, relating to damages involved.
This piece of news came right after the country’s Department of Justice mentioned in the month of April how no criminal charges would be carried forward against the officer that carried out Babbitt’s killing.
On the other hand, the lawyer that is representing Babbitt’s family recently spoke about how the civil suit would go about claiming how the officer made use of excessive force that violated Babbitt’s constitutional rights.
Therefore, that would also accuse the Capitol Police of failure to train, supervise, as well as discipline the cop who murdered the former Air Force Veteran on January 6th.
