The widow of a police shooting victim in Neenah is appealing the rejection of her wrongful death suit. Lawyers for Theresa Mason Funk have filed a notice with the federal appeals court in Chicago that they’ll try to overturn District Judge William Griesbach’s (grees’bock’s) decision from November first to throw out her case. The lawsuit names the city of Neenah and police officers Robert Ross and Craig Hoffer — both of whom were involved in the killing of Michael Funk in December of 2015 as Brian Flatoff allegedly held hostages in a dispute about a motorcycle he bought. It all happened at Eagle Nation Cycles in Neenah — and City Attorney Jim Godlewski tells the Appleton Post Crescent he expects the city to prevail in the appeal. Meanwhile, the 47-year-old Flatoff is scheduled to go on trial March fifth on 16 criminal charges including felony murder.
