This case takes place in Virginia and involves a potential software breakdown of the computer aided dispatch system for a county police department that resulted in the shooting death of two individuals. The plaintiffs in this case were two bounty hunters who were attempting to apprehend a fugitive. There was a police unit that was assigned to the bounty hunters as they entered a residential development. As they executed their search through the housing development, a resident called 911 due to the suspicious activity of the two men. When that call was placed the computer aided dispatch system routed the call to a different unit that responded to the scene and did not alert the police units assigned to the bounty hunters. The unit then responded, which resulted in a shooting. It is believed that the computer aided dispatch system failed due to a serious flaw in its design, contributing to the accidental shooting death of the men.
