Officer Bruce Jacob's family files suit

Posted: Updated:

We've learned the wife of Jackson Police Officer Bruce Jacob is suing the man court papers say was behind the wheel of the car that killed her husband.

Jennifer Jacob filed the civil suit against the driver, Elliot Varney, and also Doug and Judy Varney, who owned the vehicle.

The lawsuit doesn't state an amount the Jacob family is seeking, but it asks for "any and all damages of every type and variety permitted by law."

Jacob's family is represented by Attorney JA Ogden. His law firm declined to comment.

We also know JPD has turned the case over to the Hinds County District Attorney's Office. They'll determine whether criminal charges will be filed against the driver.

DA Robert Smith tells us his office is reviewing the case, and we'll soon know if it will go to a Grand Jury.
