"[Curtis] Mitchell died in February 2010 while waiting 30 hours at his... home for an ambulance during a blizzard, but Chief U.S. District Judge Gary L. Lancaster dismissed his family's lawsuit against city and county emergency services."

They filed in federal court to avoid a $500,000 damage cap in state court. Now they'll have to file there and then we'll see whether the PA court thinks there's any obligation.
