The family of Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot while participating in the Jan. 6 invasion of the U.S. Capitol, plans to sue the police department and the officer who fired the gun for at least $10 million. News of the forthcoming lawsuit, first reported by Newsweek, came more than two weeks after the Justice Department said it would not file criminal charges against the officer who killed Babbitt. The $10 million figure, Roberts said, is an estimate of financial losses that includes the value of Babbitt's "services to her husband and combined with Ashli's potential income if she would have lived."
