Daniel Wemhoff '83 proposed the D.C. Council pass the Wrongful Death Act of 2012, a bill that would extend the statute of limitations to file civil wrongful death lawsuits in Washington, D.C. from one to two years.

In a previous interview with the blog of the Legal Times, Wemhoff said he proposed the bill because he was having trouble researching a complicated case within the one-year time constraint. He was representing families of victims killed in a series of fatal shootings in Southeast Washington in March 2010, known as the South Capitol Street murders.
