On Oct. 22, 2015, Suzanne Bardzell was attacked and killed as she drove her car into her driveway.
Her former boyfriend, Arthur J. Lomando, a former police officer, was charged in the death.
A Hackensack judge last year set $5 million bail for wheelchair-bound Lomando, who lost both feet after throwing himself in front of a New York City subway train during the manhunt that followed Bardzell's murder.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, alleges police didn’t adequately respond to Bardzell’s multiple complaints about Lomando, according to the report.
