Family Expected to Sue FBI Over Shooting Death of Tsarnaev Associate

The family of Ibragim Todashev, an associate of Tamerlan Tsarnaev who was killed during an FBI interrogation, plans to sue the agency.

Todashev's parents filed a "notice of claim" Monday, saying they plan to seek $30 million in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The claim argues the FBI has given "no viable justification" to account for shooting and killing Todashev during a 2013 interrogation in Todashev's apartment in Orlando, Florida.

The interrogation occurred about a month after the Boston Marathon bombings and centered around another crime linked to bombing suspect Tsarnaev: a 2011 triple homicide in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Todashev admitted to his direct role in slashing three people's throats in Waltham and said Tsarnaev was involved as well, a federal law enforcement official told CNN in 2013. It was during that interview that Todashev was shot dead.

The Council on American Islamic Relations Florida filed the notice of the Todashev family's intention to sue on Monday.

CAIR is now recognized everywhere in the world as a terrorist organization supporter, everywhere except in the USA where Obama and Progressives have endorsed them. Obama and his administration has met over 5 times at the White House with the Muslim Brotherhood since 2009...they are clueless and their political correctness has only strengthened the CAIR radicals. When will America demand CAIR is removed, deported or arrested just as the more moderate Arab countries have declared? Allowing CAIR to even start a suit is appalling. Any judge who finds CAIR has any legal standing to proceed with a law suit should be deported as well. Grrrrrr..

Is this one of those use of lethal forces that the Feds want investigated by outside agencies? Or is that just for us barney fife locals?

Been sued in Federal court for 1983 action (acting under color of law) on a few occasions. All of those were filed within 12 months of the action and I thought that was the rule. Has that changed? If not, looks like they are SOL.
