LOS ANGELES (AP) — A camp ranger, who was allegedly carjacked by Christopher Dorner, plans to sue the city of Los Angeles for the $1 million reward offered for information leading to the capture of the rogue ex-cop who led authorities on a manhunt.
An attorney for Rick Reltebrake said Friday that his client’s 911 call directly led police to Dorner’s hideout in a mountain cabin.
Earlier this month, the LAPD said three former judges will decide whether anyone can lay claim to the reward and set up a claims process.
The judges will also determine how the reward should be distributed, if at all.
A couple, who called police after Dorner allegedly tied them up and fled in their car shortly before his Feb. 12 death, have also submitted claims for the reward.
