Nelson Morales: Brains behind heist that killed NYPD officer Peter Figoski sues city
Morales, 53, is claiming that he was permanently injured when a Department of Corrections bus he was on crashed into another bus on Rikers Island on Jan. 4, 2012, less than a month after Figoski was shot in the face and killed in a botched robbery.
The suit filed Friday in Bronx Supreme Court reportedly complains that Morales experienced ”serious personal injuries and … suffered shock, pain and mental anguish.” He is seeking unspecified damages.
The City Law Department did not provide the Daily News with a comment.
Morales is reportedly scheduled to be tried this month.
