On top of rallying for a new law that would make it a crime for police officers to refuse help in a medical emergency, the family of Briana Ojeda says they are planning a civil suit against the city for the actions of police officer Alfonso Mendez. The family's lawyer said, "We plan on a civil suit against the city and every person responsible for not stepping forward." She also asked, "It is 17 days since Briana Ojeda passed away without any word of condolence or sympathy from Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly or the mayor. We have not heard a word from Police Commissioner Kelly. Where are you?"
