Damage Suit Filed Over San Bernardino Killings; Widow Seeks $58M


The widow of a man killed in the Dec. 2 San Bernardino shootings is suing the county for $58 million, reports the Christian Science Monitor. Michael Wetzel, an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County, was attending a holiday lunch when he was killed in a mass shooting orchestrated by Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik. His widow, Renee, has filed four claims against the county. She is seeking $3 million for loss of wages, $25 million for general damages, and $10 million for each of her three young children. Such lawsuits by grieving family members are not uncommon. And often they deliver results.
