Can Ferguson countersue?

OK, Michael Brown’s family has now filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Ferguson, Mo., after Brown was shot to death by a police officer. I’m just wondering if there is any way Ferguson can file a lawsuit against the Brown family?

It seems that the city should since they lost a police officer, many businesses and accrued an enormous amount of debt for public safety – the National Guard, mandatory overtime for their police officers and many other aspects – due to an alleged thug. There is video of Michael Brown committing a strong-arm robbery shortly before the shooting, not to mention countless “eyewitnesses” who later admitted they lied.

Brown’s parents should be held accountable for their son’s actions.
