Well, if our Attorney General does want to go on a swan-song revenge tour investigating Governor Noem’s nepotism and exposing other corruption in South Dakota, he won’t be distracted by litigation concerning his killing of Joseph Boever. Todd Epp reports that, just one month after getting off with a guilty plea to two misdemeanor charges, Jason Ravnsborg has settled the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Boever’s widow:
Joe Boever’s widow Jenny has settled her wrongful death lawsuit with Attorney General.
That’s according to her lawyer, Matthew Tysdal, from Sioux Falls.
The settlement terms are not disclosed.
Tysdal tells KELO.com News that “The parties will not have further comment, and Mrs. Boever requests that her privacy be respected going forward” [Todd Epp, “Boever’s Widow, AG Ravnsborg Settle Wrongful Death Lawsuit,” KELO Radio, 2021.09.29].
Apparently we don’t get to find out how much Jason Ravnsborg has to pay for killing a man. We can only hope that Joe Boever’s family feels they’ve received some justice… and keep up the pressure to ensure that Ravnsborg pays the public price of losing the law enforcement position for which he has demonstrated his unfitness.
