An attorney for the family of an Australian woman who was fatally shot by a former Minneapolis police officer is asking a federal judge to hold a hearing so he can find out whether the city is indemnifying the officer.

Bob Bennett represents the family of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, who was fatally shot July 15, 2017, by Mohamed Noor after she called 911 to report a possible assault. The family sued for $50 million and their case is on hold while Noor faces criminal charges.
