Lawsuit to force D.C. police to turn over information in Seth Rich murder filed

An Arlington-based legal investigative unit filed a lawsuit Wednesday seeking to force D.C. police to turn over information gathered in last year’s fatal shooting of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

The Profiling Project, headed by lobbyist and lawyer Jack Burkman, along with law students at George Washington University, filed the suit in D.C. Superior Court in hopes it can gain access to surveillance video from a camera at the Flagler Market, near where Rich was killed; the D.C. Medical Examiner’s report on the death; and the forensic ballistic report.

As part of the lawsuit, Burkman is asking that D.C. police release the information within 10 days. Named as defendants in the lawsuit are Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) and D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine.
