Sorta makes me wonder how this got into the "thousands" before someone noticed.

Re: IN: Woman kills officer's attacker, now getting sued

What I don't understand is if the court found her within her legal rights of self defense (and defending the LEO) then how on Earth can the family of the criminal sue the woman who was protecting the LEO and herself? If I was the judge I'd just laugh and dismiss the case... Texas is a "Stand y...

Re: TX: Houston-former 911 operator convicted of hanging up calls

Years ago, just after 9/11, there was a lawyer in one of the northern cites, I think it was Detroit, who was suing the city on behalf of a client whose house burned down.

Re: IN: Woman kills officer's attacker, now getting sued

Though it still may require an attorney if civil case filed, it really makes me thankful for Texas and CPRC 83.001. CIVIL IMMUNITY. A defendant who uses force or deadly force that is justified in Chapter 9, Penal Code, is immune from civil liability for personal injury or death that results from th...

Re: IN: Woman kills officer's attacker, now getting sued

As I said, the dead suspect's family is suing the woman and the police agency involved (in this case the Indiana Department of Natural Resources). Even without the state being involved, the woman may have liability insurance that the plaintiff's could tap, and I think this would not be known until t...

If you want to do something about it, she has a GoFundMe page. Kick in a few dollars. Help set an example that lawsuits like this should be/are unwinnable.

Re: California could split into 3 states

...P.S. On the Tucker C. show some pol in cal. suggested the homeless be allowed to live in people's back yards, there's more to it than that, but that's the gist of it.
