SAN DIEGO (AP) ' A family that lost four members when a military jet crashed into their San Diego home is seeking $56 million in compensation from the federal government.
Attorney Brian Panish said during closing arguments Wednesday that Don Yoon should receive $25 million for the loss of his wife and two baby daughters. His father-in-law would get $20 million for the loss of his wife and his oldest daughter.
The U.S. government has acknowledged responsibility for the 2008 crash.
Justice Department attorneys estimate economic losses to be about $1 million. They have made no recommendation on how much should be awarded for loss of love and companionship.
U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Miller did not say when he would decide the issue.
