Lightfoot to Sue City Over Man's Death
Former D.C. Council member William Lightfoot is planning to sue the city on behalf of a family who say their son died unnecessarily after EMS workers misdiagnosed his chest pains and breathing problems. Edward Givens, 39, died of a heart attack, the coroner has ruled. EMS workers told Givens that he was suffering from acid reflux. Read the full report from this morning's Washington Post.
Attorney General Peter J. Nickles has said that he is still studying the case, but he didn't hesitate to respond to the news of Lightfoot's plans. "Bill's a good lawyer," Nickles told Washington Post reporter Elissa Silverman. "I look forward to seeing him in court."
