Sues NYC for $250 million, is surprised at city's reaction



The policeman's widow profiled in this highly sympathetic Times article claims to be shocked that the City of New York is advancing all the legal arguments at its disposal to counter her money demand for $250 million: "It's like they don't care anymore." Funny how that can happen, isn't it? Central to her suit, it seems, is the exceedingly lame theory that it was negligent for the city's police department to have bought Chevy Impalas and Luminas as highway patrol cars.
