Wrongful-Death Claim in Burbank Shooting

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/wrongfuldeath_claim_in_burbank_shooting_20050708

The family of an Israeli immigrant killed by Burbank police is pursuing a $51 million wrongful-death claim against the cities of Burbank and Los Angeles. Assaf Deri, 25, died a year ago when Burbank undercover police officers shot him in an alley in North Hollywood. Attorneys for the family said they filed their claim late last month, just prior to the one-year anniversary of Deri's death, but the filing could not be verified on Friday, when the family went public with the legal action.
