Court won't hear appeals from Bulger victim family

Supreme Court won't hear appeal from family of man allegedly shot by Bulger By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Supreme Court won't hear an appeal over whether the family of a man allegedly killed by former Boston mob boss and FBI informant James "Whitey" Bulger should get millions of dollars from the government.

The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from Edward Halloran's estate, which wants more than $2 million in damages from the FBI.

Bulger and another gang member are alleged to have shot Halloran on the waterfront in 1982. Bulger was an FBI informant at the time, and two judges ordered the FBI to pay damages to the families.



But the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the families did not file their claims within the statute of limitations.

The Supreme Court, without comment, refused to hear the appeal of that decision.
