Family Of Murdered Border Patrol Agent Files $25M Suit Against Atf

#ixzz1lBDFeSaNFox News:

The family of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry has filed a $25 million wrongful death suit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives claiming Terry was killed with AK-47s that were knowingly sold under the Fast and Furious gunrunning probe to a straw purchaser for drug cartels.


In a 65-page complaint, filed in Arizona state court on Wednesday, attorneys for the family claim ATF "wrongdoing" in Operation Fast and Furious.

“ATF's failures were not only negligent but in violation of ATF's own policies and procedures," the complaint claims.

The family has also filed a suit against the Lone Wolf Trading Company seeking unspecified damages for negligence in selling the weapons to the purchaser and aiding and abetting in Mexican drug cartels’ conduct.


The suit says Lone Wolf knowingly sold "hundreds of weapons" to various straw purchasers and in turn realized "hundreds of thousands of dollars in profits from these sales."

The suit alleges that "but for defendants' negligent and illegal sales ... Brian Terry would not have been murdered in the Arizona desert on Dec. 14, 2010."


The family is seeking a jury trial.

The government now has 60 days to respond or the Terry family will file the suit for the $25 million.

I heard this on Fox earlier, worded very badly, first sentence says filed $25 million wrongful death suit, last sentence says if gov doesn't respond they will file $25 million wrongful death suit. You would think some of these places would proof read what they put out

Surely they meant to say if the gov doesn't file an Answer or Entry of Appearance within 60 days the family will get a default judgment
