The family of Miriam Carey, the unarmed woman fatally shot by U.S. Capitol Police after a high-speed chase last October, filed a federal administrative notice of claim to sue the police for wrongful death. Carey rammed her car into White House barriers and then took off for the Capitol before police shot and killed her. Her family is now seeking $75 million in compensation. David Hawkings, who writes the Hawkings Here column for Roll Call, talks with WAMU host Matt McCleskey about the reaction to the suit on Capitol Hill, and how the lawsuit could unfold.
