CASE ENTRY

Ortiz-Rivera v. United States

Family of man shot and killed by gov’t agents sends wrongful death claim to FBI. Yikes! Actually, ICE agents killed him. The family sends claim to ICE on July 24; it arrives on July 28 at 7:22 p.m., the last day of two-year deadline to file, but agents do not come into actual possession of the mailing until August 1. District court: Which is too late; the family can’t sue. First Circuit: Maybe it can.
