$75 Billion sought in the death of US Agent

$75 Billion???

yeah right.

Quote:
The family of a slain immigration agent is suing the government and many others
Quote:
Was Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata's death due in part to negligence by his supervisors? Do the U.S. gun shops that sold the weapons used in the attack share some responsibility? What about the armored vehicle company whose SUV failed to protect the agents?

Now, the family of the slain agent, in a $75 billion lawsuit filed Tuesday, alleges that all these and more were responsible for Zapata's death.
Quote:
A second immigration agent, Victor Avila, was wounded when he and Zapata were ambushed on a highway in San Luis Potosi. The two were traveling to Mexico City in an armored car with diplomatic plates. They were run off the road and attacked from two vehicles by gunmen who fired indiscriminately, Mexican authorities said.

Avila is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit names more than 20 defendants, including the U.S. government, the straw purchasers who acquired the weapons used, and the federal firearms officials who oversaw the flawed "Fast and Furious" operation aimed at tracking the flow of weapons across the U.S.-Mexican border.
