'We have a Mission' friends are just as bastard in court as they are playing Easy Company.
Short version: "It's not our fault! Those people shouldn't have been breaking the law(they actually weren't but don't let that mess with our story)!"
The family filed a federal lawsuit for damages that ended last month in a
settlement (paid for by taxpayers) not only totaling less than the
amount of the infant’s medical bills, but split up between
family members. Furthermore, the conditions of the settlement included
restrictions on further litigation pursued by the family in order to
ensure that taxpayers, not the individuals who almost killed an infant,
will be responsible for any further payout.
Of course. No matter how they screwed up, the officers must be protected.
'Disgusting' doesn't really cover this, does it?
