Family Of Woman Fatally Shot At Capitol Plan To File $10 Million Wrongful Death Suit

The family of the woman who was shot and killed during the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol is planning to file a wrongful death suit for $10 million.

According to Fox News, Ashli Babbitt’s family plans to file a lawsuit against the Capitol Police and the officer who fatally shot her.

The Babbitt family’s attorney Terry Roberts told Zenger News that they will seek at least $10 million and will serve the Capitol Police department within the next 10 days.

Babbitt was fatally shot as she broke through a doorway as part of a mob of rioters who were supporting then-President Donald Trump. The rioters were attempting to enter into a restricted area near the House floor that had been barricaded. 

“A rookie police officer would not have shot this woman,” Terry Roberts told the news outlet. “If she committed any crime by going through the window and into the Speaker’s Lobby, it would have been trespassing. Some misdemeanor crime. All a rookie cop would have done is arrest her.”

Authorities have not identified the officer who shot Babbitt, and the Justice Department has already announced that they will not be pursuing charges against that officer.
