“I am not seeking money, but justice”

“Dear PoPville,

I am following up on the bike incident that happened some time ago. I heard back from the officer investigating the case. He told me that, because it was not caught on camera, the US attorney’s office is not following through with the case.

I was told my only option is civil court, which is somewhat of a bummer. I am not seeking money, but justice. I dislike that the assailant is a DC security guard with a badge they can flash and, more troubling, a deadly weapon. Since civil court is used to seek damages, compensation is really my only avenue, and I did not seek medical attention after the incident to document any sort of physical harm. I was wondering if any of your readers might have suggestions for a lawyer that would take their fee from the damages only if the case was won. Thanks.”
